Re: Magnetic Variance
Thanks for the replies everybody. Osprey, Donna is correct. I want to learn to get where I'm going without electronics. I have no problem with electronics and will definitely make use of them. The whole point is that if my boat suffers an electrical failure, lightening takes out the electronics, the batteries fail, or whatever, I will be able to find my way confidently.
Chapman's presents the subject a little differently, and maybe a little easier to understand. It says the 3 north's I need to know are true, magnetic, and compass north. It did explain better the difference in compass north and magnetic north. I'm in the process of reading it again. My printer is out of ink so that delays the idea of printing out a chart for now. I'm going to use the examples in Chapman's to write my own quiz questions and I'll post them on here to let the forum grade me and see how I do. I'm getting a wisdom tooth yanked tomorrow so it may be a couple of days before I get around to it.
