    Re: The Darn Old Cocked Hat - the sequel 1

    Like you, I have spent enough time at sea doing Piloting, Navigation and 
    Celestial Navigation.  After retirement from the Coast Guard I taught the 
    same in small classes to know what a fix is and isn't.  And how to use a 3rd 
    (and 4th if needed) LOP to verify a fix.
    
    I started my professional life as a mathematician so this discussion of the 
    DOCH was of some interest to me until they went off into the wonderland of 
    statistics.  You can prove anything you want using statistics - I've seen it 
    done too many times.  
    
    Semper Paratus Chief!  I look forward to anything else that you have to pass on.
