And yeah, it was WAY spendy, but for us it took us all the way through NZ and OZ so was a deal for us.
Interesting! How old were the Cmap charts? What is the Navionics detail like for the Outer Reef areas? Pic shows the Heralds Prong No 2 reef area I was at a few weeks ago. The green area is just an envelope of the area where shallow reef occurs. The Google maps sat image shows a lot more detail. Would you be able to post a Navionics screenshot of this area?
