    Bill, you wrote:
    "Can you help me locate the  spot you used on the beach?  Was it between
    Indiana Harbor and the Gary  works (chart distance of 20.7 sm to Sears and
    21.4 sm to Hancock); or east of  Gary, near the old Bethlehem/Burns Harbor
    Plant (approx. 24 sm)?"
    
    The  latter. Near as I can pick it off from terraserver.com, the position is
    41.621N,  87.253W. This is a little east of the "Marquette Beach Aquatorium
    and Aviation  Museum". Octave Chanute flew gliders on the beach there back in
    the 1890s.   Let me know if this position agrees reasonably well with your
    calculations.

    42.0N 87.7W, or 41.4N  72.1W.
