Here is a question for the group:
How precise/accurate do any of you attempt to get in your calculations? I realize that depending on what particular task you are engaged in at that moment, your accuracy and precision will vary (i.e. Noon Sight, versus Lunar Distance for Time).
My goal is to take measurements that will put my position within 2 miles of reality, is this good for a small sail boat? I realize that it would not be good for a big ship such as the Exxon Valdez.
Hence my questions. Thanks ahead of time for your answers.
