And stupid people assume perfection. In 40 years of sailing all over this planet we have gone through three sextants, several chronometers, and countless destroyed charts. Your naive outlook and lack of experience can mean only one thing: you live in Ohio.

Re: What happens when your navigation systems fails

I find it hard to believe that two boats and crews were lost, I'm sure the Navy has the best of equipment and probably redundant systems. Were the crews not well trained?.
Do they not also carry paper charts as every sailor should?. Paper charts do not fail, only the navigator can be faulted.
