Totally agree!!  The navigation charts should look like photos and the accuracy should be to inches.    Depths are more important to me because of our 7 foot draft but realized this may not be so availible?   I am always amazed at the programs financed by US dollars to study things like crops or Polar Bears, or Antarctica.  Fix the damn charts!!
