    I think I've witnessed the most unusual method of determing height of
    eye. When I was to teach a group of scouts a little about celestial
    navigaiton on the brigantine Exy Johnson, I asked the captain what the
    height of eye was. He didn't know, but a crewman promply climbed over the
    side and dangled down until his feet were near the water. He said that he
    was six feet tall, and I could easily add four more to get a HE of ten
    feet.
