    looking for maps/ charts for San Francisco Bay area

    Im looking for some maps and charts of the San Francisco bay area, from 1900 to today. I know they are out there, but just cant find anything with detail, and that doesnt require payment.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    What details are you looking for; bathymetric or otherwise? If you're in the San Francisco area, UCB (Bancroft) offers a great map selection. If you can get to Sacto, their California History Room would also be helpful.

    OK, thanks guys! At this time, I cant do more than online searches, since Im not in the area, not even in the country, so everything is long distance now. My Cali partner seems to be up to his ears in work, so need to do even the simple things by internet now.

    I have "quite a few" navigation maps from a ship that was stored in the Mothball fleet of the SF Bay. I acquired them when the ship was scrapped and I received the chart room cabinets filled with charts. I have only briefly looked through them so I don't know what all is there but I do know the massive roll contains charts from Calif. to at least Canada of the West Coast. If you wish to be more specific in the area you are looking for I would be happy to look and send them to you for the postage only. I hope this helps. :-)M

    ps. I would scan them and email them to you but of course they won't fit my scanner.

    If you lie the first time, you'll forget to lie at the right time, the next time.

    Thats a nice map, but I was looking for actual nautical charts, with depths and such.
