Jake Ace and I (with another friend) are heading up for a day to try our luck, but we would love a chart of the area. Anybody got an idea where we could get one? We've searched the web and called to dock but to no avail. Nonetheless, the pressure's on Jake to uphold that sterling reputation as the flounder king of the bay. :D :D

I'd imagine a boating supply store would have what you need.

If you have a hard time finding an ES seaside chart, let me know and I'll get my buddy Pete's charts and make copies for you.

What are the dates? I would try to hit up some local spots, they usually have them. I have a few charts of the area if all else fails though. Feel free to have Jack (or whoever) e-mail or call (Ace should have the #)me and I'll see if I can find them.

I would be inclined to try to look them up online too, might be the best bet. You might have to pay [a bit more], but you should be getting the most up to date info. Which on the ES is pretty important since details tend to change from day to day. I would probably start with NOAA, Maptech, and UScharts. Good luck.

Well, they're only updated as fast as NOAA can produce updates, which is usually every few years at best.

Boaters World and the such should have em.

Kinda on the subject.....I have a good friend who works at NOAA here in Norfolk. He's been involvled in their ongoing project of charting using side-scan sonar. They're doing it all over the country, and producing results digitally as well. Whether digital online charts are in our future, I don't know. Would be pretty cool though. Anyway, this move by NOAA should allow more update-able charts in the future. Not to mention some of the improved contouring info the side-scan sonar will produce.

A lot of new wrecks and structure showing up out there, I assume......

damn! pretty good for online.
at least in terms of the channel marks

Kimo and the boys need a true chart though, or as my friend from RI says....CHAAHT.

Good link, thanks. Particularly for heading to inlets and barrier islands.

Thank you Fishman! A cursory glance leads me to believe that your map is the ticket. Cripes, Jake may have to let you in on our flounder secrets......ok, his secrets :D :D

The best things in life could be free and kept secret. These are the BEST FREE chart and mapping sites on the web.

SevenCs produces a FREE viewer and in conjunction with the last two listed sites you can produce charts (DENC) of all the Atlantic seaboard you could ever want including the bay and tributeries. Too bad FUND is not still available though.

If you need assistance installing or setting it up, let me know, I'll try to help you. DNC017 is the one you want, but I hope you have DSL because these files are huge, but contain more than you could ever ask for from a paper chart. Follow the directions from the SevenCs site for their viewer and then add the data from the FUND site to it. The TOPO site will give quick data that you can produce yourself from the other two.

****BLANK STARE********

That's amazing! Thanks Surf&Turf. I haven't had a chance to wade through all that stuff, but I certainly appreciate your time and effort. Good grief, looks like I'll be busy through the weekend.

What's a chart? We don't usually need one from the parking lot to the pier. Well, occasionally we might need one.

I'd like to thank everyone for their help. I feel confident we are now ready to ventrue forth well--armed for battle.

Now if only the fish will be as cooperative. :rolleyes:
