[Home]Chart Case

HomePage | RecentChanges | Preferences

A chart case is a large dry bag that lies flat, basically. There are several closure methods - some use zip-lock type closures (much heavier than what you'd find on a lunch baggie) while others use various roll-top closures. The corners of chart cases are usually equipped with grommets, D-rings or similar widgets that allow you to secure them.

Two-sided chart cases are better than one sided. With two-sided, both sides of the case are transparent and you can fold the map so that by flipping the case over, you can see a much larger portion of the map. One way that is convenient is to attach the chart case to the bungies or lifelines closest to the cockpit. One side can be observed with the chart case on the deck; the other by flipping the chart case over onto your spray skirt.
