    Re: There are charts and there are CHARTS

    A lot of water down our way is inadequately surveyed or not surveyed at all. Marked on the charts as such.

    Local knowledge and the Mk1 eyeball is the order of the day as there are many reefs and some 120 islands/rocky outcrops in the arhipelago,

    It can be very rough as well, nothing much between us and Antarctica.

    I have some old aviation charts covering parts of outback Australia circa 1930s, really interesting, in part for the lack of information. The airfields marked have no runways in many cases, you land into wind be the message.

    A friend has a marvellous collection of charts, some quite old. Quite valuable too.

    Frank A.
