    Re: Due north
    From: John Kabel

    I believe one generally uses 000 for North, except that 360 is used for
    arithmetical purposes when going from relative to absolute bearings and
    back, and in applying the TVMDC rules.  But pencil in 000 on course and
    bearing lines on the charts.
