    Fast Ferry to Beantown (Boston), MA
    From: Bruce J. Pennino

    Hello:

    After reading Outward Bound, Chaper 14 "Mixter", about a cruise leaving Long Island Sound , I decided that someday I would take a trip from Provincetown (Cape Cod) to Boston, MA. This brief trip would be an ideal time to practice CN on a rapidly moving vessel.  I know that several NavList contributors teach coastal navigation, so maybe some of this data are useful. The attached document shows all of my CN sight data taken with an Astra.  I have selectively looked at the data, but not done a complete reduction because something always seems to come up.  Since the Great Circle problem is mostly resolved, I thought it would be appropriate to take a short summer  cruise across Massachusett Bay. I hope there are no blunders.

    It was a fun cruise and many people asked questions. A few people wanted to look at the sextant; one sailboat owner wanted a brief lesson.

    Happy New Year and, maybe, enjoy this cruise.

    Regards,

    Bruce
