I have to confess, it has been awhile since I have seriously studied Nathaniel Bowditch and his tables, I will be getting back into that once I get to cruising full time again. I am relying on a memory that has proven faulty more than once. Once I get back aboard my own vessel full time with sextant
in hand, I will regal you with all the details regarding this matter. Right now, I am up to my ears in other more pressing matters. I can neither support or discredit my argument; at this point it would probably be best to disregard my opinion.
