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.
