    I divided the 297 miles measured on plotting sheet by 11.1 kt speed
    (10.3 kt plus .8 kt current practically on our stern).  Since the
    current was stated, I assumed we were supposed to use it.
    5.  Distance from 2342 Z fix to Cape Horn = 297 nm.
    6.  Compass course = 100.

    Constructed a new plotting sheet for this question.
    8.  Compass course = 66.
    The problem says drift is "0.8 Kts/day".  I assumed this meant 0.8
    kts.  My E-6B says we should angle 2 deg right to correct for that
    much current.  Subtract the total compass error of 12 E to obtain
