ST. PAUL, Minn.—February 6, 2013—OceanGrafix, the first and only company to offer NOAA print-on-demand nautical charts, announced today the availability of a new waterproof format available for nearly all of the company’s charts.
Printed on a high-grade synthetic material, OceanGrafix’s new waterproof charts are completely impervious to water. “Mariners face a variety of conditions onboard that can make it challenging to keep paper charts dry,” says OceanGrafix President Ron Walz. “This new format, however, will ensure that charts can be utilized under even the most challenging conditions.”
“While our standard, water-resistant charts meet the needs of many of our clients, some environments do call for a truly waterproof chart,” adds Walz. “This new format gives our mariners another option. It’s just one more way that we can help ensure that mariners will use charts onboard—and improve their safety on the water.”
