We are planning a passage from Lake Ontario, down the St Lawrence to Nova Scotia and down to New York. 

The passage is lengthy and involves numerous paper charts, for one use only. We have looked for a chart folio but can't find evidence of any such publication. We have C-map electronic charts but prefer to have paper as well.

If anyone has charts we can buy/borrow we'd be very grateful. Obviously, we will reimburse postage.  We have an English address or a relatives address in Ontario for postage.

Hi Belinda and Kit,
We are headed into the Great Lakes in a season or 2 (in Nova Scotia presently) and we also like to have at least small scale paper charts of our cruising grounds, but agree that doing so is expensive. I might suggest that for much less money than paper charts, you can get a I-Pad/tablet with Navionics for the cruising area as a back up. Use it all the time (in conjunction with your other e-chart system) or wrap it aluminum foil and put it away. We do have paper charts for much of the Canadian Maritimes, but have been using the above to good effect.
My best, Dick Stevenson, s/v Alchemy

Hi Dick,
Thanks for the reply and tip.  Yes we have thought of having a dedicated tablet and may well go down that route, but we'd still like paper charts if possible.  It's so nice to be able to see the 'bigger picture' on a route!

Also, you  (or other members) may be interested if you're planning to head up to the Lakes; we have up-to-date Richardsons Chartbooks for Lakes, Ontario, Erie and Huron inc. Georgian Bay and North Channel for a very reasonable price.  We'll be back aboard in May and obviously passing through Nova Scotia and US East Coast this summer if anyone is interested in them?

We have a relatively full set of paper publications for the area concerned having​ spent 4years cruising in the Great Lakes, St Lawrence Seaway, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland Region. Most are on board our yacht which is currently laid up in Vancouver Island but we will be returning on board mid May and could post then if any use.

There is also some useful free information on that area on the RCCPF​​ website
