    Re: Regarding fix bearings
    From: NavList

    I know that paragraph from Dutton.  There are also so-called fix bearing 
    methods described in Crawford and Saunders, Reeds and Mixter.  Of course, it 
    is described in Bowditch (see TAble 7)  There are also so-called 7/8 Rule, 
    Bow-Beam rule, Doubling angle Rule, Special Angle Rule (34deg-64 deg, 38 
    deg.-74 deg, 44-88, 60-113 which gives distance abeam equals distance run), 
    or 38-52, 52-74, 63.5-90 which gives distance abeam equals twice distance 
    run), etc.
    
    The formula I suggested just make one more way to calculate distance off, NOT 
    TO REPLACE ALL THE OTHER ONES.  If someone got that impression-I'm sorry for 
    misleading.  Again, it is another different way to calculate the distance 
    which give the flexibility of not looking for a special angle combination.  
    It is not a double angle case.
