    Re: A GPS story

    By the way I'm Tom.  Not sure what's up. I am in complete agreement. I own 3 sextants and at least 2 are on board my boat at all times. Most every passenger is "required" (in a casual way) to shoot the sun. Most love it. Even if it places them in Milwaukee despite the fact we are generally on lake Superior. ; ) 

    My point is that while GPS is a black box, it is only the familiarity that lets us think CelNav is not. So often we hear on this list about "over reliance" on electronics. That is probably true. But it is probably also true that reliance on the electronics has saved more that caused grief.

    Dr. Sult:

    At the bottom of your post, appears a few lines of comment from Frank Reed, at least it's signed FER, and mentions some of the "virtues" of CN. Might I add the following, Aside from "it being good, clean fun", it gets the kid out into the sun, the wind and what one hopes might be the fresh air too.
