            The DR comment was not meant in any way to flame Dan Hogan or any one else
    that prepare the Silicon Sea problems.  He does a great job, and I for one
    have learned a lot about navigation via of this list and his efforts and the
    efforts of others who work on these problems.
            At first I started to send the comments only to Dan, but it had been so
    long since we did a Silicon Sea I had to go over the terminology of my
    Celesticomp V programs inputs.  My real comment is about the program written
    for computer and calculator for navigation.  To input data one must know the
    way the person who wrote the program define the terms for input.
            I agree  with Mike Wescott - mike.wescott@XXX.XXX doing the work
    on a boat for yourself you know what you want.  Now it may be a different
    situation if the Captain ask you to compute a plan a leg, do a DR, plot a
    course etc.  The navigator would may have to defend his work and explain
    with definition of terms.
    Learning the Hard Way!!
