My 2p worth
In answer to the original question, I have found the Imray set to be ideal for the local area. It's fairly durable, excludes a lot of the useless information needed only by things over several thousand tonnes, and has close up's of local harbours filling up the otherwise wasted land space.
I feel that a little more land detail would be useful. My skipper has once radioed the CG for help on the north coast of scotland around 15 years ago, whilst totally lost. The chart was useless in finding their position, so they told the CG what they saw, and the CG pulled out his road map and guided them home. Perhaps gradient colours on land for height would be useful?
No one really uses paper for proper navigation now, again, we only use them on a yacht for backup to the 2 GPS plotters. They are, however, far more useful to pick up and scan for local hazards, and for port entry.
