Used Charts

We're going to do the Triangle Loop ( Erie Canal, Thousand Islands, Rideau, Ottawa river, St Lawrence to Sorel, Chambly to Lake Champlain). I have new electronic charts but I'm looking for some paper charts as well for this trip.
These are the charts I'd like to get . Thousand Island 1436, 1437, 1438, 1439
Rideau 1513, 1512 Ottawa river 1515, 1514 1510 Montreal 1429, 1430
St Lawrence 1310, 1311 Chambly 1350, 1351

Thank You

Try the AGLCA website. They always have Loopers selling charts after they are done. I purchased 200 lbs of charts for $100 prior to our trip.

Over 200 views and no one has any used charts for sale . Guess nobody does this route.

Lots of folks here have done and are doing the GL. There may be several reasons for no results:

1. There are folks all over the world viewing these pages. Those who are done traveling the GL with no intent of returning are much fewer in number.

2. A vague title can generate lots of views but little action.

3. Paper charts are becoming less common among boaters. Many favor the electronic options exclusively.

4. Folks who have invested in the charts may not be so keen to sell the charts.

If you'd like help renaming this thread, let me know and I'll do it for you.

I think the advice given by Meridian to consult the AGLCA site to focus on those who have traveled the loop is good advice. Theirs should be a 'target rich environment'.

Best of luck in your quest.
