Wow. The first nail in the coffin of raster charts?

I know ENC's are "better" by most measures. I'm just used to seeing the old format.

Also, there's a ton of information on raster charts that was never digitized. Particularly place names and shoreside structures. If you need to make a distress call, it's really handy to know what's around you, and to know the geographic names of nearby islands, hills, rivers, villages, etc.
