Re: The danger of GPS as the sole means of navigation.

Yeah, let us not overlook the effectiveness of that low-cost navigation aid:

"E--yeball"

Works great!! Only trick is using it to look out the friggin' window, or under the jib, or outside the hatch dodger, and not just to stare at all the radars, echarts, Gps interface, AIS interface, knotmeter, and even the lowly compass.
