    Hello RBEmerson,

    I stumbled upon your advice on determining bridge height because I was searching for dimensions of a boat for storage purposes (great advice, by the way). Then I noticed you had a '85 Baba '35!!!! That is exactly the boat I am looking at buying (even the same year). Well do you like it? I am thinking about living aboard her in Boston and sailing her each summer in Maine where our house is. Before I get too serious about the purchase, I also need the overall height (without the mast) to see if I can build an addition on to my barn to store her. Any help or advice would be appreciated!

    You said:I have a copy of "C. Plath - 1837 - 1987" (a company produced history of C. Plath)...

    Is it a copy of the book or one exemplar of this book?

    I'm interrested by the history of the Carl Plath production.
    Do You know how to ave a copy of this book ?
    Best regards.

    I cannot remember the name of the other RPN maker, there was at least one. This getting old really sucks, notwithstanding the limited altetrnatives. If memory serves, and I less than certain here, thery were a component maker, chips or memory I think, that did calculators for a time. Think they are out of business now.

    Mr. Emerson:

    "Telephonebook arithmatic" is simply a pet phrase of mine, likely I do not come close to originating it, and even if I did, it's "public domain stuff" so far as I'm concerned.

    What it described as essentially copying some numbers out of a table, then doing some simple "math", plain trig isn't difficult, even I got through it, though I do not remember all that much of it. In any case, with a "scientific calculator" or "sliderule calculator", I use the HP 11C, which BTW is an RPN unit, it's a snap. I believe all HP's were RPN. I think there might have been one or two other makers that did the RPN type, which I was always more comfortable with than algebraic keyboards. Also, if I reacall correctly, some TI's, current or recent production are "selectifv fire weapons", that is you can switch between RPN and Algebraic keyboard op.

    Mr. Emerson:

    Concerning sight reduction, I use the USPS forms, though I have no doubt there are others, likely many others. As to the process itself, the phrase TELEPHONE BOOK ARITHMETIC somes to mind.

    For the trig calculations, I use an "obsolete" HP programable calculator, the HP 11C, which is a hell of a lot smarter than I am.
