    Do you mean for 18th century navigational methods to be "tried" or "demonstrated" or "relied upon?"  

    If the last, then I'd classify the captain as a fool.  The competent navigator always relies upon as many sources of navigational information as possible -- including ones that might not have existed at the time a vessel was constructed.
