    Dick, you wrote:
    "A more up-to date discussion of the methods of Micronesian navigation
    can be found in a recent book (1987) by Steve Thomas.  Thomas sailed
    with one of the few remaining practitioner's of the ancient methods.
    Thomas comes with notable sailing credentials and his account provides
    some useful insights."
    
    I think these should be called "traditional" methods rather than "ancient"
    methods. We have no way of knowing how old they are. We also have no way of
    knowing how much they have been influenced by other cultures' navigational
    practices or how much they have been "re-invented".
