By Jove, I believe you're right, cam! And at less than half the price of the Weems & Plath GPS Plotter, a real bargain! I think I'll go with that, the dividers/compass Leff recommended, Boater's Bowditch, that SD recommends, one of my good ol' mechanical pencils (mostly plastic, btw, SD) and a good eraser.
My plan is to use the hand-held GPS that's coming with the boat to establish position and plot the course this way--using my GPS/chartplotter/sonar for confirmation/verification.
Thanks, gentlemen, all of you!
