    Re: Running Fix Practice Problems

    Dutton's, if you buy it new, comes with a separate book of problems. At least 
    it did 20 years ago. But you can make your own as well,
    by just taking bearings on single things when you see them, and carrying them forward on your DR track.
    You can also take sun sights at, say, 1000, 1200, and 1400. Carrying all the 
    sightsf orward to the third gives a running fix by sun alone.
