    Re: Irradiation and manual navigation

    Frank had written-"As for Chauvenet, he had almost no experience in 
    navigation. Though he was an exceptionally competent and
    meticulous mathematician, why would you trust his numbers on something like 
    this? Are his works Scripture?? "
    And I responded-
    "This is not the first time that Frank has made such a statement about 
    Chauvenet, in dismissing his views. I would like him to
    provide the evidence on which it is based.
    And if, as it should, experience in navigation is the thing that matters, I 
    ask Frank to outline his own such experience, so that we
    can weigh up his own worth against that of Chauvenet."
    Thanks to Frank for doing some extensive research, which provides 
    more-than-sufficient evidence to back up his statement about
    Chauvenet's lack of navigational experience, and I have learned from that research.
