    Ha! I really hope that was sarcasm! :) Especially considering what you said earlier: "...the GPS stopped working about 800 miles into the journey and didn't pick up sat signals again until about 300 miles from the Western Approaches."

    Seriously though, .4'? That's great! I love hearing stories like this, thanks. One day I hope to try celestial from a ship for myself. I mean, shooting on land is fine, but I'd just like to try it at sea at least once. It's one of the only ways I can think of to actually inform myself of my position without having myself kidnapped. ;) And I think that would be very gratifying.

    ...I mean finding my position, not being kidnapped. Lol.

    Regards,
    Sean C.
