Default Free online charts?

I am at work so I don't have my GPS or charts. Is there anywhere online you can look at free charts? Sort of like mapquest for the water?

I am looking for Hog Island that is off the eastern shore of VA.

Yep MatTech.com Click on free online map/charts where you can select nautical charts, aeronautical charts, topographical charts, and even some old satellite shots of some areas. The neat thing is you can get Lat/Long info because it gives you that by moving your mouse around.

That is a cool feature! Great with the use of a GPS.

You can also download Maptech's Chart Navigator software if you want to plot courses etc.

I'm not sure if you can download the information onto a chip for the GPS though? I just downloaded it yesterday and haven't had much time to play.
