Greg makes a good point, those chart books rarely strike the real joy and pleasure of skirting across the sheet with a parallel or roller rule, but look at the Weem and Plath Nav board, it is specifically designed for those NV Chart type or the Mapquest series.
But I also like the PVC method of stowing the large charts. And to keep the chart from "springing" back God gave us weights, and I have 4 cast iron painted white whales weighing a good 1/2lb each to hold the rolls at bay.
What diametre PVC pipe would you need or wnat to use for 10 to 20 charts? I would keep them numerically ordered, and label the pipe for the numbers and titles, and of course PVC capped is better than Kraft tubes aboard a boat every time.
I saw a PVC pipe specifically labeled for charts, I think either Celestaire or Weem and Plath sells it.
