    Wondered about that, but you have so many ways to skin a cat, I glossed over
    it.
    
    In the major blunder category, I had been working off the east-west line for
    convenience, and failed to convert the LOP and bearing back to cardinal for
    several postings now.
    
    LOP/course should have been 68d ( not 22.X d)
    
    Bearing to Smalls (from DR latitude with longitude adjusted by time site):
    
    Sumner's Smalls location:  69d T
    Frank's Smalls location:   75d T
    
    Bearing to Smalls (from Sumner's "true" position):
    
    Sumner's Smalls location:  72d T
    Frank's Smalls location:   90d T
