Oscar,

Great read on your Chesapeake to Fort L passage.

Thought your views on Chartplotters from an aviator/sailor''s perspective was very perseptive. I liked your two hour log entries. It would seem to force you to look at the paper charts and identify visual points of reference.

Although mesmerized during my first CP use during last spring''s voyage, I was immediately overcome with fear at how oblivious I could become from a situational awareness point of view. Good to read that I am not the only one.

In my November cruise, I did not have the good fortune of looking ahead to +60 F temps. Seemed like the OAT was stuck at the 38 F reading!! The scenery made up for it.
