WOW Garfie (or should I say .. ....... naw why spoil it ) thats one helluva good looking guy!
I trust you keep that piccie about your person all the time in a safe place.
You never know you might want it to scare off some kids or salesmen from the front door! Or you could leave it on the mantlepiece to keep the children away from the fire.

we have the same problem in teaching people how to fly... so being ex military we teach everything in units of 6/60/600 or 6000

For coaching people in a rib doing nav ex's i always teach multiples of 6 knots - 6,12,18,24,30 etc really is simple for most people after the first couple.. and these speeds are typical for most sailing/ribbing types..

Yes I did mean exactly that! what I also meant to say was more or less what Mr. Glatzel and Mr Mullet said, however, I had bee travelling for the previous 28 hours and had been drinking for most of that time, I'm rather glad to say, so All i could get out was that eronious post

Yes you probably are unique, but have you thought about buying some newer charts, those black and white ones are now quite old.

And back to a previous thread ...
What was the mode of transport you'd enjoyed (?!) for the previous 28 hours, through which you'd drunk so much? Could you ever have found yourself responsible for it's navigation?

I seriously hope not! Ship, Taxi, Departure lounge 7 hours (that's were the rot set in, plane, taxi. Also it was a flybe plane and they sell you the booze so i ordered 4 Cognac minatures (it's a good system)

I believe I asked to have a go at driving the plane or the hostess but both requests were declined

Best ones ever - really miss the "here be dragons" signs!!!

Seriously though my Raymarine is easy to set in fathoms - a wonderfull measurement and much more nautical.
