    Silicon Sea
    From: Dan Hogan

    I am not a mathematician, astronomer or a teacher, just a small boat sailor.
    I DR mostly in my head or use a pencil when it gets dicey. I resort to the
    nearest whole degree on my celestial navigation. I think that 3 decimal
    places is fantastic accuracy and sail using the principal of the three "L's",
    Lead, Log, Lookout.
    The original intent of the Silicon Sea navigation problems were to stimulate
    discussion on the Navigation-L list. The legs were posted "as is" with
    mistakes and errors for that reason. For personal reasons, I don't have the
    time or the inclination to continue Silicon Sea to it's completion. Please
    post your problems with any of the legs to the list...that's what it was set
    up for.
    If anyone would like to take over the Silicon Sea problems I am willing to
    provide any help you may need.
    I will be updating the archive (ssea.zip) shortly.
