    Re: William Bligh's navigation and mapping

    Question I have would be if Bligh had an octant or a sextant and if he had either did he do the math in his head?  That he didn't succumb to the wilds in an open and crowded boat and made it to a somewhat friendly port is nothing more than amazing.

    I believe that there are modern day  Admiralty charts of the Great Barrier Reef that still contain sounding measurements taken by a certain William Bligh - after the mutiny while he was navigating the open launch.
