Hi there, it has been awhile and I have been out of touch. But my question is this: Why are Nautical and Marine Navigators opting to use HO 249 and shunning HO 229? I like 229 and the idea of using a sight reduction table designed for someone up there in the aether while we in sailboats suffer at sealevel, is a bit perplexing to me. Is easy always better? Okham thought the simplest solution was usually the most correct answer, but where has precious and being exact and lauded for it gone?
