Getting rid of Deviation as much as possible IS important though. After all, your brand new chart plotter could
fail at the same time that your crew stands on
the old GPS which you've kept as a backup
, and the pocket GPS
that you use when climbing mountains just runs out of battery
and suddenly the fog comes down so thick you can't see a hand in front of you
- and then
where would you be if you hadn't sorted your Deviation? Lost, that's where you'd be.
Follow the instructions posted earlier and you can be very, very smug - and NOT lost.
