This is why you never put 100% trust in your electronic charts!!

Above is the entrance to the harbor of Mahon, Menorca.  The colored track is our actual lat/lon path into the harbor.  As you can see the charts are shifted right a few hundred yards.

Looking at this now, its easy to understand why Deb was below looking at this and screaming at me to turn HARD RIGHT NOW!!

Good think I brought along my eyeballs!!

PS>  Reminds me of a similar situation when we first had the boat and were entering a harbor in Tonga.  Patrick was below yelling at me saying that we were sailing over the cemetery!!
