    Re: What makes man a Navigator?

    Hi Tony,

    Skills I expect as a navigator are: position finding by terrestrial/celstial/electronic means, compass error determination, DR's, Tides/current determination, chart/pub correction, noon slip information, and most critically, voyage planning.  They should also be able to do the various sailings to tell me how many miles from port A to port B so I can figure out fuel consumption.
