Thanks for the welcome messages I'm looking forward to making use of this forum.
It is practical to practice celestial on any of the Great Lakes
, and it certainly could help if you were to loose all other forms of navigation
. I have used it with the GPS
turned off to sail to Port Washington
, Wisconsin just for practice and it worked perfectly. I used an old mariners trick of intentionally arriving on the Wisconsin shoreline north of my destination
by enough that I was sure it was south of me...turned to port, kept the shoreline in sight, end of story! In fact it was so good that I could have sailed directly into Port Washington
without using any tricks!
