I will be seeking the Coastal Navigation
Standard soon, through self study, and am working to get the required material. I have been to a few websites, to include ASA
, and have found that there is not a basic standard of the materials used. If there is, then it's muddy to me. The ASA

Will the Weems and Plath Nav kit (ASA Store
the Tom Tursi Coastal Navigation Manual and kit (Coastal Navigation Manual, Solutions Workbook & DVD
) be enough?
I have found a couple of schools who offer a complete kit, but it seems there is a handsome convenience charge, or other material that may not be needed, associated with them.
I am experienced up to the 104 standard and am familiar with how to read, plot and extract a compass
course. I am also familiar with reading Tide and Current
To any of you who have completed this class, what are your recommendations?
