Re: ASA Coastal Nav Exam - HELP

Just a little comment on your approach to solving the exercise.

If you are going to teach navigation to students I think it is good practice to do stuff the proper way.
Always plot courses and bearings using true direction.
Always use variation and yearly change in calculations.

It's better to learn a method that works everywhere & every time instead of methods that work sometimes..

If you combine modern plotters with traditional navigation it is important to operate with one type of directions, the plotter will happily give you true bearing and COG.
