I found the CMAP charts scaled better than the NOAA vector charts in some areas when zooming in. CMAP included detail that the NOAA vector chart didn't include that you could see on the raster charts and kept that detail as you zoomed in. Alaska charts are all over the "map" so to speak. When I have steamed through land they generally all agree I have steamed through land. I'm glad the boat didn't notice any lack of water.
