Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?

LOL @ Jon Eisberg! (Two sets of chart books)

Guilty, though; I usually describe us to ICW bridgetenders as "southbound sailing vessel Cinderella" and it seems to me unambiguous even if the bridge spans an E-W section. But then, bridges are fixed items. If I'm hailing a tug I give position relative to them: "tan sailboat off your port bow" or the equivalent.
