The problem with working in minutes of arc is that the Nautical Almanac and charts are in degrees and minutes. Too much trouble to convert to all minutes. I don't think the space savings justifies the extra work. Best not to go too small on print size. Not worth it just to save a page if it is hard to read.
Actually I prefer to work with number tables vs. graduated rules. So the pages of ruled sins, cosines, & haversines is not to be.
