    Re: Navigation "simplified". was: Buckley the Navigator

    It has been many years since I read Buckley's book about sailing
    across the Atlantic. If I recall correctly, I believe that the HP 65
    was programmed by a friend/engineer from HP.
    I always had the impression that  Buckley was fascinated with CN but
    did not know the level of detail of the subject that one might be lead
    to believe and, as has been mentioned earlier, did things by wrote.
    I also recall a rather pompous comment near the end of the book
    explaining that due to his notoriety many people would buy his book on
    sailing thus paying for the voyage.
    A review of his video I read commented that "you better bring your
    dictionary" to understand what he was saying referring to Buckley's
    incessant use of obscure words. I would think it not too condusive to
    easy understanding someone new to the subject.
    Interesting guy.
