    Nav technical? Not necessarily

    George also proposes:
    Let's assemble a few facts first, that can, I hope, be agreed on.

    You've hoped in vain, George.

    The topic of navigation is, in most respects, a technical matter, which
    calls for clarity and precision of meaning.

    And yet only a few hours ago we were presented with the quite astounding tale of those almost-twin sailors who appear to have directed their tiny outrigger, without the benefit of any instruments, across the Atlantic to planned landfall on an island 3-miles by 10-miles in size.

    Navigation technical?  T'aint necessarily so..  Navigation includes whatever assists.  In the real world - as opposed to the view from the armchair.  No boundaries.

    [T'aint = It is not]
