I have been studying my little book over the past couple of months and making comprehensive notes, almost written another book!. Yesterday I sketched a plotting sheet and plotted my assumed position, azimuth, intercept and a LOP. Therefore theoretically completed every step. I conclude, looking at each step individually there is nothing too complex even for me to understand, however the steps required just go on and on and that is to complete just a single LOP. How anyone can complete 6 or 7 LOP's and get the fix onto the plotting sheet while your still in the same hemisphere beats me. Good job I only sail at 4 or 5 knots.
