    I have watched this list for some time now avidly reading and trying to absorb all the information passed on it.

    Last year I took the RYA offshore nav course but have problems implementing the content.

    I only have a very small boat and do most of my sailing in the Bristol channel.

    I can get what I hope is a good sight now and then but find I need to carry far to many books, almanacs and proformas with me?

    By the time I have looked up the information needed and filled in the proformas everything is wet and falling apart.

    I do sometimes take my laptop but battery power is a problem. Can anyone tell me the best system to use on a small boat with limited resources on board

    (please don’t say use a gps all the local boat clubs keep telling me that. I have one but I want to do it the proper way)

    Also is there any good share wear out there that can produce daily tables (I have one but it gives different results to my yearly almanac).

    Thanks in advance
