    Deviation table etc.
    From: Jim Guthrie
    Date: 1996 Aug 31, 15:10 -0500

            How about us getting a deviation table for our ships steering compass?
    A Napier diagram would do fine!
            I think any navigator  coming aboard a 40 ft sloop to navigate wants
    and needs to know the compass deviation table.
            Dan, I'm sorry for the scrambled leg 17 report but I sent it back to
    myself and it came back intact ? ?
            The list mentioned a few months ago an interesting book re.
    navigation on a freighter - it was "Looking for a ship" and I found it very
    interesting.
    But I recently found a book telling the other side of the story : "Steaming
    to Bamboola".
            The first book is about a US flagged ship run properly, the second
    is about a non US flagged tramp freighter with qualities that suggest we
    need to be wary of them at sea.
            These are both available on "Books-on-tape"  The author of Looking...
    is John McPhee; and the author of ...Bamboola is Chris Buckley - a son of
    one of THE Buckleys.
