Re: Old school navigation

Maybe it is a bit like we are flooded with too many nav options today?

All the gizmoes ... mostly to show off ... while all we need is a star to sail by?

I checked via Google to fine whether what I learned matches the list taught to others , and although Log, Line and Lookout gets a few mentions, it's more often in the forms

Log, Lead, and Lookout

and

Lead, Log and Lookout

Same three elements, but "Lead" is less ambiguous than "Line" (given that the traditional log also used a line)
