    Re: Coast Navigation School

    That brings back memories...  I searched my bookshelves and
    located: Blue Water Navigation, Cornell Maritime Press, 1947,
    Captain Svend T. Simonsen.  It was signed by Svend in Santa
    Barbara in 1969.  I fondly recall working through several courses
    offered by Coast Navigation.
