Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?
........ Commercial captains seem ti be the only ones who are more likely to refer to their actual direction of travel on the Ditch.....
Also a pet peeve of mine. I find many will only use N, S, E or W, when there is a huge difference between east and northeast, for example.
Had a buddy send me a text that said he was 10 miles north of Cuttyhunk, which wold have put him about 3 miles inland on Mass. He was actually 10 miles east in Vineyard Sound.
I hear many people refer to the New England coast as simply north and south, like Maine is north and NYC is south and the coast never varies.
