    Gary:
    
    This is another example described by a "kitchen table navigator," i.e.,
    someone who has never tried it. No mention is made of the effect of
    vessel north-south motion and declination change which can produce a
    significant time difference between maximum altitude and LAN. I noted to
    a friend that I was lucky when I first tried the method many years ago,
    in that I was sailing a course with a significant southerly component.
    Otherwise, I might have believed the lore.
