Gilles , mock ye not !

How on earth do you think our forebears DID manage to navigate ?

A very good clock gave you an idea of local noon , and therefore your longitude . An understanding of Astrology gave you a rough latitude .

( The constellation ,The Great Bear not only indicates North, but also estimates your amount of " Northness " if you know what to look at )

A typical modern book of car maps would be far more accurate than than a 300 year old shipping chart .......

I'm not advocating these techniques today , but your old Corsican chum probably understood navigation better than you ?

Happy New Year.........Bern

As far as I'm aware, hazards to navigation aren't marked on the AA roadmap

Course they don't Nos , but you can have ALL the modern gizmos in the world , and with bad seamanship , there goes another Costa Concordia....

There's an awful lot to be said for a bit of common sense , a knowledge of the tides and a good look out......

Sorry have we derailed this thread ?

Ps I did mean astronomy and not astrology in my last comment

Hello, HUMBER, I'm sorry for replying you so late, I went out to have a party at the
weekends.Well, my budget is about 8000 dollars, and I want to have a new
one since it's my first boat, I think the boat about 3.9-4.2 meters is ok,
I want to use this boat to go fishing, I'm learning how to fish right now,
so my passangers are men about 45years old, huh, there will be 2 or 3
people on the boat at most of time. By the way, an all weather boater will be better and
I'm not Beckham

Thanks advance, looking forward to your suggestion, have a good day.
