A.P. Balder's "Marine Atlas of the Hawaiian Islands" makes up in convenience what it lacks in originality. This coffee-table format book simply repackages National Ocean Service charts in a book.
Unless you spend your whole life on the water, you could probably save money by buying just the charts you actually need from a NOAA-authorized dealer. Even so, "Marine Atlas" will be a preferred choice for many sailors, especially those who go out to sea in tiny craft.
Balder has been issuing these "cockpit-handy" compilations since 1966, starting with his own sailing grounds, Chesapeake Bay. He now has crossed the country in 11 volumes.
The Hawaii book is a miscellaneous collection of data. The water sections are (or were, in 1992) the latest editions of NOS charts. The land sections are mostly old by often handsome engraved maps.
The combination of modern and antique cartographic techniques is more appealing than I would have thought possible,...
This is an old out of print collection of nautical charts somewhat find to find and I have seen it sell for over $150.00 wow I finally found one here at a reasonable cost but...the charts are way out of date and extreme caution says use only broad reference for the islands. It needs to be updated and reprinted.
