    I've heard of "Golf Cursing" but "Sail Cursing"?

    If anyone has a copy of the "Best of Sail Cursing", published by Sail
    Magazine Books. It is their original 1st Edition hardcover version, or
    subsequent softcover versions of the first pub, you will find an article
    titled "A New Method of Plotting Celestial Lines of  Position". A different
    author details how to do this in your log book using the ruled lines either
    vertically or hormonally for lat or long. I have used the technique for
    years, and find it very useful. I recall sending a link to a tanker
    captain's site who kept scrupulously detailed celestial entries, and who may
    also have used it.

    I ran across a nice Web Site by John Ellsworth with a good article on hand
    made plotting sheets from a 1973 Sail Magazine.
