    Say it aint so......
    From: Guy Schwartz

    Hello folks:

    I am studying for the Navigator grade in the US Power Squadron.

    Part of my sight folder is a two object sight that need to be plotted using law of cosine and using the Nautical Almanac Sight Reduction methods.

    The power squadron has a 3 mile tolerance (GPS location vs. fix position).

    My concern is that the 3 mile tolerance is for both Law of cosine and NASR methods.

    It seems to me the NASR would deserve a larger tolerance in that there are assumed L and Lo positions as starting points

    Am I right?

    Thank you,

    Guy
