How Old is Your NOAA Chart?

We’d like to see all boaters be as safe as possible on the water. One simple thing you can do is to check the age of your chart.

If your chart is a POD (print on demand) NOAA chart from OceanGrafix, locate the chart number at the bottom left. Below that is an “Additional Corrections” box that itemizes other changes (LNMs, NMs, etc.) and the dates associated. These changes supersede the edition publication date information and need to be applied in order to make your chart accurate.

For a pre-printed (non-POD) chart, find the chart number at the bottom left. Above that is the “edition” number, followed by the month/year the chart was printed.

For either type of chart, check oceangrafix.com to determine if a new chart is available or if there are updates to be made to your chart.

Keeping your chart up to date will keep you safer on the water!
