Take a Peek Inside


HAVE YOU EVER BEEN FRUSTRATED BY A NAUTICAL CHART?


Before you got your first boat, you likely went out and picked up a nautical chart or two. You excitedly sat down at the kitchen table, unrolled them, and stared at them for a few minutes before your head started to spin. You rolled them back up, put them away, and never looked at them again. 

 

We created this eBook because we know that understanding a nautical chart is a process. It takes time to understand the symbols, abbreviations, and rules associated with navigating the water. With this book, you will be able to start really getting to know your nautical chart and feel confident using it to cruise out from the marina. 

 

This book is meant for beginners. If you aren’t sure the difference between a “nun” buoy and a “can” buoy or don’t yet know about preferred channel aids, then you definitely want to download this book. If you already know your way around a nautical chart, this book may be a nice refresher.

 

Just fill out your information above and you’ll get your free copy of The Beginner’s Guide to Reading a Nautical Chart created by Waterproof Charts.

Created by Waterproof Charts


Waterproof Charts is the original waterproof nautical chart maker. We know everything is moving digital, but we still believe in good old-fashioned paper nautical charts. Picking up a nautical chart at the store or online, you think it will be just like reading a map. But we know it can be overwhelming to see all the symbols and numbers.

 

That’s why we created The Beginners Guide to Reading a Nautical Chart. We want to help our customers, future customers, and anyone looking to use nautical charts understand charts so they can get out on the water. We hope you get a lot of useful information from our book and will share it with anyone you know who could get some use out of it.

 

The chart examples in our book are our very own Waterproof Charts. Grab a chart of your own and start testing out your new skills.
