What’s in your chartable?
« on: July 29, 2020, 05:34:18 PM »

Staying on the boat tonight and doing a little “clean-up”. Not telling if this is before or after... 8)

Noah,

Nicely done. Now the trick is keeping it that way.

Noah,

My experience has been that as long as the dividers are there, one gets in the habit of replacing items where they best fit, it becomes a good habit.

My wife is convinced it is the only good habit I've had since she's known me.   :cry4`

Noah : I believe that we all have similar items.  Although I still kept the "tools needed to plot on a paper chart" because I got my C34 even before Loran!!- so that stuff was necessary back then.

Early on I cut thin wooden strips so they would act as dividers inside the table so items could stay organized in place. After awhile I installed a spring to keep the lid open by itself.

Hear ya, Ron. Most of us “vintage” sailors keep analog back-up tools for all our electronics. I keep a stopwatch, hand-bearing compass, dividers, hand-held wind gauge, and can’t forget my old fashioned speed/time/distance dead reckoning sliderule/wheel. Now, all I need to do is sail somewhere  8)
...BTW- I still have my original star finder chart/wheels set, but my eyes are too bad to see stars these days, let alone navigate by them. :abd:

Ha!!! Paper charts (to cover area where I voyage these days—which is not far) are rolled up in a tube on the shelf in the main saloon.

I stapled a piece of phifertex on the underside of the table lid, that's were we keep our chart books.

Made a holder (more phifertex) to snap on the inside of the hanging locker, that's where we keep the flashlights.

Made another holder for inside the bathroom cabinet door, that's where we keep the tools needed to disconnect the Raw Water input hose from the thru hull in order to clear anything that clogs the thru hull.

Anther holder for pens and pencils is secured to the aft facing surface of the bulkhead above the nav table.

The rest of the nav stuff (Dividers, Parallel Rule, Compass Rose, SSB HF Receiver, odds and ends)  gets tossed in the nav table, nothing as neat as yours but that gives some great ideas. Thanks.

I think I'm in need of intervention   :abd:

If it gets any worse at least you can send up a flare!

Guys : Many years ago, I wrote a Mainsheeet tech note article (with pictures) of adding and extra shelf above the Vberth shelf.  I keep all of my NOAA paper charts up on that top shelf folded in half and flat.
 
Nothing more concerting than to have to hold down the edges of a rolled up chart!!   :cry4`

Ron, my old friend Kenny once said “chart storage is a bit like gambling...got to know when to fold’em and know when to roll’em...”😎 For rainy-day back-up charts...roll’em.

Ron, do you have a link, or could you post the Mainsheet tech article you wrote about installing an extra shelf over the vberth for charts?  Thanks
