Re: Minimal Electronics reqirements and alternatives

I reckon it's fair to say that for most of us these days we would be lost (literally) without GPS. Even those of us who have done a bit of celestial nav training have probably fogotten more than we originally knew.

Mark is dead right .... it's all very well to talk about the good old days but all these electronic geejaws (sp?) make sailing a damn sight safer for us than it was for my long dead great great granddaddy.
