    Leg 48:
    1. DR 34deg 22.4' S   155deg 22.3' E  by meridonal parts calculation. I
    elected to use
    the steered course of 89.1M  or 103.6 T . Since a DR was asked for I did
    not factor in
    Last FIX was at 19:32:20 Zone Time (+10) or 9:32:20 GMT , adding the
    10:57:58 to run the
    95.5 miles gives 20:30:16. The date stays the same, 17 Feb 99.
    2. DR now 34deg 33.7 S  155deg 54.7 E. Again, no current correction
    3. New true course is 112.8 deg.
    4. I think I need a FIX before I can calculate the Course made good.
    5. I get a DR of 35deg 4.5' S   157deg 24.1 E.
    6. I discarded Rigil Kentaurus because of the low sight ( lazy, too) and
    came up with a
    FIX of 35deg 00.2' S  156deg 59.6 E. (By calculator)  This is 20.5 miles
    and 282 deg.
    from the  DR position. I now get a course made good of 116.5deg T from
    the #2 DR.
    7. Seems to be Jupiter. (by calculator after a long wait)
    Thanks for the nice problem.
