    Byron:The Navy many think go overboard with the amount of fixes while in hazardous water. But the
    need is there, Navy large and nuclear ships make for big news when a problem occurs. Other grounding and problems are not big news.
    In 1972 the Journal of the Institute of Navigation Spring addition, carried a “Navigation Planning and the use of Special Techniques by Byron Franklin and Ernest Brown. It stated that,” adequate navigation planning for transit usually requires taking more precautions for the ships safety than the measures actually employed during the transit. The Article is 6 pages of special techniques and planning. In 1972 I was sent from Scotland to US. Washington State to give a talk on the article it was also published in other countries.
    I know that mericants take almost zero fixes and use pilots for their transit and with the GPS they have prolonged success. If you desire more say so.
