    The original book of pilot charts is 29 inches wide and 21 inches high.
    I just compared my 1981 edition of the July south pacific charts with the on line version and they appear to be identical. There was an error in the 1981 edition in that the legend stated the current was in knots and there were values up to 35 knots shown on the chart. When I first saw this years ago I thought, boy with a current like that you could cross the pacific in one week just by drifting, no need for an engine! They corrected this on the online version and state correctly that it is drift in NM per day.

    Thanks for the information you sent (links).

    I looked up a pilot chart for the month of January, I expect that they would all be the same size overall. It printed out on 8.5 x 11" sheets in 3 sections, each one being 4 7/8" high x 7 1/2" wide, which I gueass could be pieced together to produce a single large image, covering the entire area.

    I don't recall offhand, what the overall sheet size of individual sheets of pilot chart almanacs might have been, do you?

    Please advise, and thanks again.
