I would like to rotate and then crop this custom NOAA navigation chart leaving just the portion within the red box that could then be printed in large format as a high resolution wall mural.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

To rotate a PDF file by a degree that's not divisible by 90 you would need to add it as a watermark layer to another file. After you do that you would be able to use the Crop Pages command to also hide (note, not remove!) the parts you're not interested in.

Do I start with a new blank PDF and then add the chart PDF as the watermark? Thanks!

Yes. Then you'll be able to specify the degrees of rotation.

Another option would be to place your pdf into an InDesign or Illustrator file at the desired size and rotation, then export to a new pdf. The advantages are you will have precise control over the rotation and position, you can add bleed per your printer's specifications, and the unwanted parts of the pdf will be permanently cropped, reducing file size. Your pdf contains annotations (stamps) which ordinarily won't show up when placed into InDesign or Illustrator, you can run a preflight fixup on your pdf to convert annotations to regular page content- Tools> Print Production> Preflight> Fixups. It's a good idea to do this before sending your file to a printer, regardless of the method you use to rotate your pdf, to insure all wanted elements print.
