    Re: correct way to draw LOPs

    Dan,
    I think the arrows came from aviation Navigators. When I was taught
    navigation by Pan Am we put arrows on our LOP's and I didn't think enough to
    ask why. Just one arrow on each end. ?
    I'm not going to mention how long ago this was. I haven't seen it used by
    seaman.

    >>Hi - is the corect way to draw an LOP a line with a arrowhead at each end?
    >>Or is it a single arrowhead pointing to the bearing of the object.
