    Re: North Atlantic outline chart.

    Glad you found what were looking for. If anybody is interested I'd also
    like to point you towards the Open Source Generic Mapping Tools website:
    Primarily biased towards UNIX and Linux operating systems there are also
    some MS Windows executables to be found at:
    The range of maps and charts you can create with this software is mind
    boggling! A word of warning - there is no graphical user interface, it's
    all on the command line or dos prompt via a series of complicated
    commands, switches and options - also mind boggling!
