Has Anyone Read 'Emergency Navigation' ?
Has anyone read "Emergency Navigation, 2nd Edition: Improvised and No-Instrument Methods for the Prudent Mariner" by David Burch? This seems like one of those books that could save you in a worst case scenario, yet there is only one review at Amazon.
I've got the book, and found it very interesting. It's not so much a reference book, but something to learn from and remember the points. Good for developing a broad understanding of navigation without having to go through all of the detail of celestial navigating with a sextant.
Ok, I thumbed through it last night and it really looks like a great book. I have not read it in detail and compared it with my celestial but it gives a lot of good information that, when your GPS goes down (not an emergency), is useable and great to know.
