Unless I catch "the bug" I am only interested in the marine navigational basics as a backup to electronic equipment in case of failure or I end up in a position similar to Robert Redford...
Bruce, Thanks for the information. I am looking forward to learning the basics.
Noell, Sound advice....the idea is to be able to always find your way home. Thanks.
Bob II, I just finished an interesting short book titled "Southeast of Montauk" by Stuart Heywood. He describes a solo trip to Bermuda in a small sailboat that is struck by lightning and must rely on celestial navigation to find the island. This is what sparked my interest. I live in New London, CT. Wish you were closer. Thanks again.
Stan, Thanks for the information and links....
Best regards, Tom
