    Leg 55 results
    From: Paul Hirose

    This is a little late, but here are my Silicon Sea Leg 55 results.
    The first four answers I have previously posted.
    1.  DR Mar 16 2101Z = 47 20 S 122 52 W.  Local time 8 h behind
    Greenwich.
    2.  TC to 52 30 S 100 00 W = 109, distance = 932 nm.
    3.  Compass course = 82.
    4.  DR Mar 17 0250 Z = 47 42 S 121 20 W.
    (the following answers I have not posted before)
    5.  Fix at 0250 Z = 47 03 S 118 28 W.  DR was way off.
    My initial reduction with the Nautical Almanac tables put the LOPs all
    over the ocean.  I recomputed the sights with HO 211 and got better
    results.  Intercepts were very long due to the bad assumed position.
    So the fix was sloppier than I like, but I was too lazy to re-work the
    sights from a better AP.
    6.  DR after 81 hours = 52 40 S 99 44 W.
    7.  Time after 81 hours = Mar 20 1150 Z, 0450 ZT
