NOAA Online Charts

This is an addendum to my last blog entry regarding the planning of sailing trips. I left out a very handy tool for planning: NOAA online charts. They’re awesome!!! From work or home I can view any chart I’d like. Without having to lug my chart books back and forth from the boat. I can zoom in to check out harbors, zoom out to gauge the orientation of where the expected winds will blow in from. Every sailor should have a link to: http://www.charts.noaa.gov/OnLineViewer/AtlanticCoastViewerTable.shtml

Here’s a link for Woods Hole. I’m always writing about how bad it is. Might as well point out what it looks like:http://www.charts.noaa.gov/OnLineViewer/13235.shtml
