    Sirs, I confess. I am a lurking tall ship sailor. Most of the content I have found to be useful and accurate. Some have been good practice in my honing my celnav calculation speed. I thank you all and Merry Christmas.

    > I wouldn't call most of those thousands 'lurkers.' They're people who've ended up on a NavList page while searching for something navigational, astronomical, etc. They read one or two or even ten posts, get some benefit, or not, and then they're gone and would probably never come back. There are indeed plenty of true 'lurkers' who follow these discussions regularly but never contribute. At my best guess, there are around 500 NavList lurkers.
