    Interesting stuff, really.
    Frank, when you have logbooks opened, do you realize, how the chronometer and 
    lunar longitudes were used for the following navigator's day work? Was the 
    next reckoning started from them? From the chronometer or from the lunar 
    longitude? (Probably after shifting them to the noon?). Or were they used for 
    obtaining the course to steer at least, as in Norie's Epitome from 1831? Or 
    were they left aside and DR longitude remained the starting point for both 
    the reckoning and for aiming at the point of arrival throughout the all 
    voyage as in the contemporary Bowditch (1851=1838)?
