    Re: How did Sumner navigate in 1837?

    Agreed.  Their posts have whetted my appetite for the subject.  In fact I'm
    spending more time on this now than my regular CN course homework!  The good
    news is that working on this issue is hammering home the principles for me,
    so it is not wasted time.
    
    I'm working on trapping their thoughts in my study notes at
    http://jimthompson.net/boating/CelestialNav/CelestialNavigationNotes.htm
    but it will take me a while to work them all in.
