    Re: LAN Example for ON Nov/Dec Issue

    Greg,

           This is yet another example of the wildly erroneous solutions to the celestial navigation problems in Ocean Navigator. Other examples can be found in the thread starting at http://fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx/Orion-oceannavigator-site-Stuart-feb-2013-g22310 and later renamed Berson's Noon Sun Problem. At least we can take solace in the knowledge that this end of year edition does better than the November/December 2012 one which gives a value of Hs of 38°28.8’ for Ho of 21°46.7’. The errors in the solutions are frequent and pervasive. As Stan's experience shows Ocean Navigator seems entirely uninterested in doing anything about it,

    Regards,

    Robin Stuart
