Interested in purchasing some detailed maps of the bottom of the LI sound. Things like wrecks, rocks, and other bottom structure is of particular interest.

Anyone know which is the best? Or where can I get 'em?

THANKS!

Hmmm I will have to check the Capt Seagulls thanks! Are they better than/more descript than the NOAA maps?

I will have a chart plotter come spring.


Just interested in glancing at some maps while I sit here with cabin fever. Never really took a good look outside of my immediate area...Particularly rock structure off points and around western islands....

Thanks to all who respond

NOAA charts are good but make sure you get the right scale. As far as a chart plotter goes, there are chips for the plotters called bathymetric chips. The give more bottom and structural information than regular chips. They're also referred to as Bathy chips.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there are any Bathy charts for Long Island Sound?
