I bought the same chart (1607) in Ramsgate on saturday afternoon (due to the fact that I cannot find my old one anywhere.

It was £15......

Does anyone know what the historic wreck is that is marked on it?

Only asking as the other half asked me and I either can't remember or don't know :unsure:

I (as an argumentative and irascible old git) would go back to where you bought it, ask to se the manager, and then insist on a refund of the excess charge. Do this at their busiest time in a loud voice.
Take some proof of pricing like a copy of the Admiralty Charts prices on their mail order page. If that fails picket his shop on a Saturday morning after telling the local paper you will be there. I assure you this method has worked for me many many times.

Another point which may get some folk excited is where I buy my FISHING charts. E-BAY!! Yes they are out of date and no use to do pure navigation on, but at about £7 inc of P&P a pop they do me. Most UK areas come up regularly.

Dunno if it will help you mate, but i can post you a copy of Garmin Atlantic Bluecharts on CD if ya want, it ain't "Admiralty" charts i know (i haven't seen admiralty charts anyway) but they look pretty good to me, show all the features and stuff and best of all you can print the map area that's showing on your PC screen, which is what i do, then laminate em'

I'll attatch an image here so you can see an example.

Pop me a PM mate with yer addy if ya want to do that.

Great for looking at wrecks and reefs, but not realy suitable for actual navigation.
I use my gps and laptop plotter for the navigation Tom.
I can't do "REAL" navigation, so having charts for that ain't no benefit to me mate :)

Hiya, Its a great bit of kit, in some respects better than the C-Maps PC software, but unlike the C-Maps, you cant use a GPS module with it ,and convert yer Laptop into a plotter...:)
If you have a Garmin GPS and buy the region unlock codes, you can use it on the laptop, me, i'm to tight/skint :)
