    Plotting charts: WAS: Re:

    Looks like I'm getting into the habit of starting new threads lately...

    I remember reading that this is what the universal plotting charts are for.  Navigators can do their plotting on inexpensive paper without marking directly on precious nautical charts.  In the end, however, don't you have to translate your fixes onto a real chart anyway?  How do you not "ruin" a chart that way?  Aren't there tables with removable transparent surfaces on which you can mark and erase and below which you can affix a chart?

    On TV I saw vertical panels looking like plexiglass.  Can anybody describe what they are for and what the procedures are?
