Re: Have you ever intentionally NOT used GPS on extended offshore passage?

Yes, I did a circumnavigation purposely without a GPS because in those days they were very expensive so I opted to get more anchor chain instead. The first time I actually picked one up was at a Trade & Technology show in Cape Town. It said "Dead Battery" on the screen so I set it down and walked away.
