    Here are my answers for 3) and 4) followed by questions for the
    experts.
    
    3)  C = 78.8 dT   D = 1652.6 Nm   via Mercator Sailings
    4)  CTS = 90.7 dM   via Mercator Sailings and using original S/D
        CTS = 86.9 dM   via Mercator Sailings and using the new S/D
    
    Questions:
    4) In a previous millenium I was taught to compute new S/D only after
    a FIX or RFIX.  Is this stil correct?  How would a new S/D be
    determined without a FIX or RFIX?  The assumption on my part is that
    S/D is the aggregate of wind, seaway, current, and boat leeway
    effects.
    5) I have little incentive to purchase 2002 Nautical Almanac as I
    will be landlocked for at least a few years.  Omar Reis at
    http://tecepe.com.br/scripts/AlmanacPagesISAPI.isa can give me a
    facsimile, provided I compute the corrections.  Is his data accurate?
