    Re: Lost book, "Line of Position Navigation"
    From: Peter Ifland

    Hi, Richard: :  The book is nine inches tall. The spine is grey ant the top
    and bottom with a yellow section of a map in the middle. The title "Line of
    Position Navigation"  is printed in black along the spine. I'm delighted
    that you find it a useful reference. Hope you find it.

    used  Line of Position method of navigation go to:
