Our relationship with NOAA has been more than a decade long. In those 10-plus years, we’ve continually looked for ways to offer quality products that encourage maritime safety.
To that end, OceanGrafix is proud to now be able to offer the United States Coast Pilot series using our print-on-demand (POD) capabilities. In conjunction with NOAA’s new process of making weekly online updates to the books, OceanGrafix will print the books to reflect all updates and corrections.
Why is this important? Traditionally, users would order printed updates to insert into their book, or wait for the next edition to be printed and released. But no longer! Purchasing a current Coast Pilot is a cost-effective and reliable means to help ensure boating safety.
“NOAA is making fundamental improvements in our publishing processes so our commercial partners, like OceanGrafix, can make the U.S. Coast Pilot available to mariners as quickly as possible,” says Kathryn Ries, NOAA Coast Survey’s acting director.
All nine volumes are available effective immediately.
