    Yes, according to my memory. The definitive answer should be in the archive, quite some time ago. May have been Dan Hogan. One reason for thinking this (apart from a vague souvenir of discussion) is that solutions are given to tenths of a degree, which is a bit optimistically precise for plotting by hand.

    I calculate the course made good by actually plotting a vector on my
    chart or plotting sheet. I use the latitude scale to represent the
    drift and the compass rose for the set. Does anyone do it
    mathematically in practice?
