    >Dan: re your question ...will you buy 3 to 5 miles?  ;)
    Well...since rocket science this ain't. My circle of error is my visual
    horizon. With all the errors introduced by being on a VERY unstable
    craft, largest boat I ever sailed was a 43 footer, I don't expect much
    better. I have always started a new DR from the FIX position picking up
    the log reading at the time of the FIX. I never reset my manual log
    because doing that seemed to upset the old Walker I had. I just
    calculated the distance for the leg.
    I get the feeling that all this 16 place "accuracy" that electronic
    widgets indicate people are expecting something from practical
    navigation that is just not there.
    Cheers
    -Dan-
