From David Lancaster 30/3/2016

Members should exercise caution if offered discounted Charts or Pilot books. There are copies of navigation charts being offered for sale in the Gulf area and India. They appear to be British Admiralty Charts and Pilots.

Chart copies are being produced in China and are pretty obvious from the colour (very white) and quality of paper used. Pilot books are either poor xerox type copies or perfect bound (glued not sewn as original books which ensures long life).

Some pilots can be an original book block re-bound with a light weight cover, or a complete copy, again the paper used is inferior and the binding and trimming will be poor, sometimes cutting into text on the right hand page. The copies are being purchased in India by low cost shipping companies.

To date it 's in the above areas where these are being sold, though in 2014 some were turning up in Singapore and Malaysia. It 's important to note that none of the copies are being sold by authorised chart agents or sub agents.

Please contact me if you have purchased or have been offered these items: ariel@icloud.com.
