    I aggree with you, thats why I talk of "keep it simple.
    Many have tried to keep Celestial Navigation in the main stream, of the seaman.
    Why has it been a losting battle? I learned it, and have taught thousands. First the instructor has to be interesting, the course must have interest, the sea stories must be real and interesting and the class must be interested. Not a thing else counts. Also why don't the Astromony use the (Rude) star finder for finding stars? I try to change that with my two minute star finder. I made the finder to teach the sight form! down, the road will tell. I found that most Offiers that had class room training were reluctant to do a days work in Navigation, I had to chase most of them down, but my quartermaster jumped to it and learn quickly.WHY? The instructor should known theory but, use the sea storys to get apoint across.
