    Re: Navigation in Boats
    From: Tom Lee

    Well, here goes. In about 2 weeks, I will have the opportunity to crew on a
    boat from SF to Hawaii (not the navigator). I am just beginning to
    understand the celestial process, but don't quite know how to go from the
    sight to the plot, and don't understand the "plot yet - like how does that
    angled line a piece of paper relate to my chart (I can see the smiles).
    Anyway, knowing that I cannot become proficient enough in all that is
    probably required, can anyone suggest a course of action to me that will
    profitably use this opportunity to further my grasp of celstial. My goal to
    be able to navigate offshore with GPS as my back-up. HF is availble on this
    boat - anyone want to be availble for questions and help during the passage?
    I have my own sextant and an Almanac and HO229; I am very dangerous with
    them all. Ideas and thoughts anyone?
