    Re: Silicon Sea: Leg 62

            This might explain why my positions are off on SS Leg 61. I read SS 
    took a RioJ departure fix on May 3, then after a day getting situated we took 
    star shots at 08:13:11 on the next day...May 4. But the new Leg 62 says we 
    got our fix at 08:13:11 on May 5. Cool! Finding the error is almost as much 
    fun as finding the correct answer. I'll need to rework this...at lunch time.

    Our last fix was (25d 59.7'S  39d 00.3'W) on 04/05/2000 @XXX.XXX
    PS-If anyone is interested. I had an epiphany in operating my C-THRU chart 
    plotter. This thing has had me confused for the longest time. The protractor 
    seemed backwards until I realized that one lines up the edge on the course 
    and bulls-eye on a nearby meridian. I kept trying to line up everything on my 
    course. Now that I can work this thing, the C-THRU directions are as clear as 
    a hammer to the head.
