Robbie,

If you are laminating them, it's worth trimming the edges of the sheets to remove the excess white space. Gives the lamination a better seal. Just be careful trimming the centre spread because the chart for Carrick/Roosky/Grange covers the entire A2 sheet and there's no white space in the middle. If you knew someone with a decent paper guillotine it would make the job easier but 5 minutes with a scissors works too.

Hi again Robbie,
Didn't punch them as they just about fit the laminating sleeves and you need at least a 15mm laminated border to avoid leakage at punched holes.
I keep them in an A3 clear plastic ziplock wallet. I'm on an ex-hire barge so usually hold them in place beside me on the wooden stern seat/rail under a bungee cord.
I'm in the Leitrim Village area, so if you want to bring me your charts I can do it for you. Minimum pack of laminating pouches was 100, so plenty to spare.

I will take you up on the offer, if you allow me to pay a fee towards the laminates and power etc.
