Description: This manual is intended for the recreational boater who wants to understand the elements of
the nautical charts that we employ to learn how to navigate through a body of water, the
wealth of additional information available about our waterways, and how to perform basic
navigation and plotting tasks.
In addition, the general books to which recreational boaters are often directed are excellent in
many ways but rarely tackle the subject of even simple plotting.
The focus of this document is on printed charts as well as reading and plotting using hand tools.
Marine electronics make a lot of these tasks automatic, but I have always taken the posture
that people need to know the basic process behind what our automated and computer-based
tools are telling us. In that spirit, I offer this tutorial. Hopefully, readers will be inspired to read
some of the more excellent, in-depth texts referenced at the end of this paper.
