Re: Magnetic Variance

Thank you all who are helping to agree that it is OK to use all best knowledge, and technology we have for safe navigation. Most of time as beginner I am staying very close to visual reference of known land. Due to lot of factors this can be confusing.
Especially when judging distances over water. In this case charts, and last known position on it clears confusion between visual reference, and what chart plotter is showing. Practice, practice, and enjoy doing it especially in fair weather, as they say.
