    The other common flight of flight computer is the E6-B which solves the problems with an easy to draw vector diagram, basically it is a vector diagram drawing machine.

    Yes, I always find the "what's my heading to compensate for set and drift" a more difficult problem" and particularly frustrating when there's no solution.    

    If you have a a region where there are some islands, a current and wind direction, then couple that with the sailing capabilities of a vessel and you have a rich set of problems and possibilities where the course becomes more of an art rather than a science.

    Thanks to Gary's early posts, I now have a collection of flight computers from ebay; they're inexpensive and quite fun to play with. There are a couple of simulators online as I recall. Try googling them.
