    Chuck, I was slightly north of there once with someone who was far more
    experienced at celestial than I. We had a short (but adequate) horizon and
    took sights at the same time, while underway in calm water. I used a Palm
    and as disappointed at my usual 2-mile error. They commented about
    unreliable electronic aids, reduced it on paper, and got a 900-odd mile
    error.
    
    Sometimes the computers work.
    
    Although I suppose I'd get a bumper case (rubber armored waterresistant
    case) or pouch if I were taking a Palm to sea regularly.
