    Splitting Bowditch
    From: Gordon Talge
    Date: 2002 Nov 10, 18:35 -0800

    Just a thought. I wonder if they could split Bowditch into two
    volumes. Volume 1 could be "Modern Electronic Navigation" and
    Volume 2 could be "Traditional Celestial Navigation" w/o electronic
    aids and would also include a chapter or two on the history of
    navigation and the different methods of sight reduction like
    they used to have except better.
    After thought. Perhaps even a Volume or section on the mathematics
    involved. Not a "watered down" 8th stuff, but like the old Norie's
    with sections on geometry, trig, and so on.
