    Dear Fred and Peter,
    Thank you for pointing this interesting piece of data.
    
    I recall that in his paper, which was recently discussed,
    http://www.clockwk.com/lunars/ejwhite/
    White wrote:
    "As observations can be taken at sea with nearly the
    same ease as on shore,..."
    
    and I called this sentence ridiculous.
    Frank objected.
    It is interesting whether anyone who tried to do
    lunars both on shore and at sea would object what I wrote
    about White:-)
    
    Alex.
