I'm looking for who has the best paper charts for the eastern Caribbean from the DR to Trinidad and the best prices. Among those I've heard of are: Caribbean Yachting Charts (CYC), Imray, MapTech, British Admiralty and the US NIMA/NOAA charts. Bluewaterweb sells Imray charts for $27 each with a few at $12. Bellingham Chart Printers has a NIMA chart portfolio from Virgins to Grenada of 33 charts for $262. Landfall Navigation has the four sets of CYC charts from Virgins to Grenada at $250. They are at a scale of 1:90000 for area charts and 1:500000 for passage charts. Also they're coordinated with Chris Doyle's Guides. I'm thinking of getting the MapTech CD CYCSET which has about 100 charts on it covering the Virgins to Grenada for $250. I've heard that the charts are from a German company. Thanks, Norm

The CDYC charts are great. I've used them through the entire eastern Caribbean and found them to be very good. -- Geoff
