Charts work best when kept flat. A rolled chart acts like a spring and will roll back up when let go (very annoying). Best to keep flat and folded. Stow under seat cushions or berth cushions if there is no chart table. Another good option are spiral bound chart booklets. The water proof versions are great for open cockpit use. The chart table on my 38 ft. ketch is big enough to handle charts folded twice which still shows the latitude and longitude scales on each folded area.
