    Was I wrong in that? Was he knowledgeable on lunars? Do you know??
    And you wrote:
    "I have asked Frank before now, on several occasions, to explain to us his own 
    qualifications and experience in determining lunars fron a vessel AT SEA. He 
    has never responded."
    I think you've asked me that once --re Slocum about three months ago. But ask 
    yourself this: why would I answer this question when you have repeatedly 
    mocked, attacked, and dismissed my results for land-based lunars?? Based on 
    this empirical evidence, your question doesn't strike me as an honest inquiry 
    --it seems more like a deliberate setup so that you can throw some of your 
    little spitballs. That's how you come across, George, from where I sit.
