    OK, Ok on the distance,
    >2.  Mar 29 1800 ZT DR = 4940 S 6450 W.
    OK

    OK
    >4.  033 deg true and 1920 mi to Rio de Janerio.
    Within the tolerance--I forgot what method you're using.
    >5.  Compass course, allowing for variation, deviation, and current (1
    >deg right correction) = 025 deg.
