    It was published in the QST magazine, and since I wrote about Winlink(I've used it at sea and ashore since 2002), they got the ARRL's permission to post it.  I link it in this group because it talks about a life at sea on a merchant ship and how I communicated using various radio methods.  Not exactly navigation, but still probably of interest to those on here.

    I did do a day sail on the HMS BOUNTY in 1993.  We went from Bourne, MA to Fall River.  It was my first trip on an actual ship.  I remember steering her by "spokes."  We had to motor most of the way down Buzzard's Bay because the wind wasn't good.  I read the reports about her foundering.  Many lessons learned in that event that I took to heart.  A few years ago, my wife bought a print of the ship and it's now on my wall in my house.
