    Are "circle charts" clear overlays for the coastal charts?  Do you center  
    one on each reference landmark, and find the proper intersecting angle  
    lines by eye?
    
    I have a couple of vague ideas of how that may work, but I could be off on  
    the wrong track altogether.
    
    For a different approach, cheap station pointers might be made of three  
    clear plastic disks, joined by a hollow rivet at the center, and graduated  
    on the outer periphery in degrees.  Each disk would have one axial line  
    pointing to its zero degree mark.
    
    However, I much prefer the workmanship in your real station pointers /  
    three arm protractors.  Thanks for posting photographs of them.
