    All you guys pushing  Lunars, get on a sailboat and try a set of
    Lunar Distance sights. Then do a set of "intercept" sights. You can
    use a calculator for the Lunars, but think about having to use a set
    of Trig Tables instead. THEN compare the two fixes.
    
    I have already done this. Lunars are better than NO longitude, but
    not much better than a good DR.
    
    IMHO the cheapest and easiest system (other than LOP) is the
    chronmeter time sight. Charts NOT required.
