    Hello Francis

    Er *motto!   Boy Scouts must be able to spell before they can navigate.

    And now I believe I am officially off topic.  So is EMP on electronics.  Or EMP on Mechanisms.  Or Tinfoil, hat or not.  Your sextant?  Valid question.  A direct hit would be bad.  Still not navigation.

    Thanks Bob,

    That is brilliant!

    I suppose Frank is right in that these are very unlikely scenarios,but hey! It is fun to be prepared!(Boy Scouts moto?). Ultimately, I just enjoy cel nav in all its excentric forms. I don't think we need to justify it with these doomsday scenarios but it is still fun. I doubt whether any of us will ever need to rely on cel nav for survival. Statistically highly unlikely. Enjoy anyway! (but use the mark 1 eyeball when close to land!)
