    Maybe you know about this already, but I just bought the Sailing Directions
    (Enroute) for the Philippines (Pub 162) and it comes with a cd-rom now.
    The entire book is in PDF format with hypertext links built in.  Quite nice.
    6.108 Borbon (10�50'N., 124�02'E.) (World Port Index No. 58920), a small
    town, lies at the mouth of the Jimuguit River. A church with a galvanized
    iron roof stands on an elevation S of the town; it is a good landmark
    although obscured by trees. A stone mole can be used by small boats at HW.
    A wreck, awash about 0.3m at HW, lies on the edge of the reef 37m SE of the
    stone mole. The shore reef N and E of Borbon is quite extensive and backed
    by a thick growth of mangrove.
    The Jimuguit River is small and can be entered only by small boats at HW.
    Anchorage can be taken, in 37m, mud, about 229m from the edge of the shore
    reef and with the church at Borbon bearing 294�.
    Bingkay Point (10�48'N., 124�01'E.), about 5 miles S of Mangao Point, is a
    6.1m rocky bluff covered by vegetation. A series of these bluffs and an
    occasional short strip of white sand beach forms the coast for 1 mile on
    either side of Bingkay Point.
