    Re: Preston's paper on Lewis & Clark's Navigation

    Yet another fascinating thread, everyone -- thank you.  This is a very
    distracting discussion list!  The light you are shining on these historical
    personalities is very bright indeed.
    
    I am spending the morning projecting tides and currents on the outbound
    route of our coming summer cruise to the Bras d'Or Lake.  I don't want to
    make the kids and family dog too sick during the potentially rough crossing
    from Charlottetown to Canso Strait, especially around Cape George.  C&L's
    navigation might not have been up to snuff, but their accomplishments in an
    age before electronics, engines and medicine certainly put my menial travel
    worries to shame.
