    The Romance of Yachting example is a nice one and illustrates the time trap I spoke of a few posts ago.  I can work it all just fine but then fumble around on getting the time right.  Seems time here was kept in nautical time, not civil time.  After diddling with it a few times, I was able to get the same final result as given in the example but I don't see any automatic way to detect which system is being used.
