Yay! Boat's in the water
. Now need to get the mast
up and then start on a list of other chores, including a deviation card for the compass
I had planned to put the Admiral in the bow with a bearing compass
the differences on various compass courses (or maybe the other way around, since she's not great with the bearing compass but she can drive).
But it occurs to me ... If I'm moving, the GPS
should give me a heading, which I could compare with the compass from the cockpit
. And the GPS
heading should be immune from local ferric influences, perhaps even more than a bearing compass in the bow.
Yes? No? Or would the GPS be giving me true, rather than magnetic?
