chart work

for ease of navigation i want to have the solent area broken down into A4 size chartlets which i can then laminate. I obviously want to refer to them when travelling at speed.
On my computer i have the BlueChart software but does anyone have any idea how i can print these out effectively.

thanks

Why not chop a normal chart into A4 size sections and laminate them...

There's also Stanfords ones printed on plastic sheet
www.stanfords.co.uk (also available from SeaChest as mentioned previously)

Their website has changed since the last time I visited. Seems a bit odd now.

As to printing from BlueCharts, sorry no idea!

I assume you have the mapsource software ; with the appropraire bluechart area unlocked. - if so its is as easy as zooming into a view you wish to see and use "file > print setup" like any windows product. You will probably find the landscape page setup works best.
Print on a colour printer and laminate ( one page back to back with another saves pouches and number of bits of "paper" on board.
........ unless I have misunderstood your question ?
