    Re: Nautical Almanac in document format?

    Note that on some PDFs (not all-it depends upon how the PDF is created) you
    can copy
    and paste the text on a page by page basis.  It ends up being just ASCII, so
    formulas
    come out a bit messed up and you need to touch them up, but this allows you
    to borrow
    quite a bit of information.  This is totally legal, of course, for some
    documents like
    Bowditch.
    
    I did verify that you can copy and paste from the Bowditch PDFs.

    Try http://164.214.12.145/pubs/ - this is on the US National Imagery
    and Mapping Agency's Maritime Safety Information Center web site.
