Yikes Your killin me Hog I might try that with the missus next time she goes to the mast. I wonder if thats were the term dodger came from. dodger... dodge her. makes you go hmmmm!

SA my fondest memory of Mr. Ricksford was when he was teaching me to plot DR positions. He asked me where I thought we were and I replied " I THINK we are right here." and put my index finger on the chart.
He replied "Well matt at a time like this you realy need to KNOW we are there, not think we are. And when someone askes you where we are don't point with your finger. Mash down with your thumb it gives a little more margine for error."
He was a great teacher.
