    SohCahToa is the name of a 44-foot boat that just returned to Washingon
    state after a leisurely two-year circumnavigation. Some of you may recognize
    the name of the boat. It's a mnemonic for the basic trig functions: sine =
    opposite / hypotenuse --> Soh, etc. Sounds promising, right? Trigonometry
    geeks sailing around the world... SURELY, they used celestial. But no.
    According to the article, " 'We packed a sextant, but never took it out of
    the box,' said Smith, whose techno-savvy crew depended on GPS equipment."
