    Re: Lost in the South Atlantic

     Frank,

    You said S. Atlantic and also said your shot was about 3:15 past noon so LAN was about 13:30 Z which gives your Long. 22d W.  My first try was using 10d S and I calculated 91 miles away with Zn of 305d.  Second try using AP of 11d S and 21d W gave me  9 mile away Zn 305d

    I do not have a chart of that part of the Atlantic so I do not know what island ( or Rocks ) you saw.

    John H.
