    Dear Brad,

    You said:

    ...For a highly recommended, firsthand account of US aviators forced to ditch in the Pacific, try this book I do not recall them determining position but my memory could be faulty. They were much more concerned about water and secondarily food...

    Thank you for the link! The only other first-hand story about surviving in the open waters I knew is the story by Steven Callahan on his two-month drift to Caribbean. Actually, reading it ignited my interest in the emergency navigation topic.

    Warm regards,

    Tony
