    Default Chart Corrections?

    How many of you correct your charts & how many of your charts are exactly as when purchased?

    Just about to start correcting mine. They are all 100% as purchased but were all new last year. I think it is one of these things that you just have to do, keep them unto date.

    At work we spend an awful lot of time correcting charts and publications, ALRS etc.

    I am very bad at it. I just get used to being continually surprised.

    I generally correct mine annually, at the dining room table over a few weekday evenings in early spring. Must admit this year I was a bit slack and didn't do the whole lot, only the ones I expected to use, so I have some extra work now if I want to get the West Country and a few other areas back up to date.

    I don't do them weekly like a professional 2nd officer

    Mine are corrected. A very therapeutic way of spending a few hours.

    The chartplotter was last updated in 2010.

    I usually do it (meaning maybe 7 times in 10 years), though I only apply significant corrections: print/glue a new plan, changes in firing ranges, light/cardinals, etc, I do not bother with New Wrecks in 20m depths, or depths from 8.5 to 6.5m...

    I am genuinely impressed by the diligence of folk in here.

    I deserve to be shot down in flames for admitting this, but I'm a lazy git and, with well over two hundred paper charts, it just seems like an almost insurmountable burden for very little return. I also buy uncorrected second hand charts from time to time....

    On the other hand we always have a current almanac to check for lights etc and I keep the chartplotter (Navionics) and the tablet Memory-Map plotter up to date.

    I do not carry paper charts, Chart Plotter cartridge is about six years old.
    To be honest, it doesn't bother me if a buoy has been removed/moved/added as I sail by what I see.
    An up to date Almanac (Bloc Marine) gives me info on any harbour changes.
