    Jeremy, you wrote:

    observations"
    
    Sure. And by the way, I should have added that there is another possible
    solution since, of course, the circles of position cross in two places. But
    I don't suppose your vessel was perched on a hillside in Guyana so we can
    rule out that other location.
    
    "I am good with these miraculous Lunars no? LOL"
    
    Yep. :-) As it turns out, the geometry very frequently works out nicely for
    lunar observations in the tropics. The first historical lunar I decided to
    check (see www.HistoricalAtlas.com/lunars/1825) also can be cleared
    "trig-free".
