DR Paperwork -- where?
Take a USPS Piloting course. While the chartwork portion is a real PITA, it helps clean things up a bit. In my course instructors used very few plotting sheets. Worked mainly on charts. Aside from setting your initial DRs, I''ve found the classroom and reality don''t always jive. I''m not sure having that "clean" plot will gain you any points when you hit a rock. And plotting in 35kt winds is, well, challenging.
