Re: ASA Coastal Nav Exam - HELP
I have not tried to plot this but
No deviation still mean that you must take magnetic variation into account.
Also the yearly changes..
I can see that you plotted m, I would have converted to t(rue) before plotting.
In your case
Compass = Magnetic (since no deviation)
Magnetic != true (Because magnetic variation)
And if the distance between the two positions is different from your DR position you must move your track parallel to the plotted course so your triangulation is correct.
I would be skeptic if your observed position after these two bearings is the same as your plotted (DR) position.
Sorry if I'm using different words than you are used to, I learnt to navigate in Norwegian..
