    Navigation-L Survey
    From: Greg Gilbert
    Date: 2001 Jun 11, 11:40 PM

    I too am an amateur at navigation, but enjoy the correspondence on the list.
    Here are my replies for the survey:
    
    a)      Dead Reckoning - I use the Traverse Tables from Norries.
    b)      Sight Reduction:
                            Primary sight reduction method - the
    cosine-haversine method, backed up by a calculator.
                            I check all the arithmetic using Navigator Light Ver
    3.0, from Omar Reis.
    c)      Plotting - universal plotting sheets (A3 size)
    d)      Navigation Manuals -    Bowditch 1995
                                    Blewitt, plus any others found in second
    hand stores.
    e)      Nautical Almanac - mostly I use almanac information from Navigator
    Light, but I still use last year's Nautical Almanac for reference.
    Occasionally I tap into various Web based almanacs, especially the USNO
    site.
    
    Regards,
