    For game show fans, this IS my final answer.
    Somehow I screwed the pooch or Navigator rolled itself forward to a June
    27 Greenwich date.
    It now calculates you were located at 76°30!7. No need for an
    artificial horizon as your backyard would on the beach ;-)
    A time sight yielded 76° 30' 38.5" (76°30!6 W).
    A standard reduction with AP at 37° 03!3 N and 76°30' W resulted in
    a 30.3" away intercept for a longitude of 76°30!5 W.
    A bit of disagreement there to be sorted out later.
