Paper Charts vs. Electronic Devices-True Story

Virginia Cruising Guide at the Richmond Boat Show

Williams & Heintz Cruising Guide at the Richmond Boat Show

Got a story for you.  My sister, Robin, goes to boat shows to sell our Williams & Heintz Cruising Guides, nautical chartbooks of Maryland and Virginia waterways.  This last week she was in Richmond.  Her booth was right next to a vendor of electronic navigation equipment.  At the end of the show, he bought a case of chartbooks, to give to his customers, who purchase expensive electronic navigation systems for their boats.   He wants them to have them for planning and as a backup.

Just goes to show that electronic devices are not replacing printed products, but  they complement each other, and make each more effective.
