Also one minor detail: The position you plot is a history of where the boat has been. Remember your boat is moving and those hard won positions is to affirm that you are on your track line and when to tack before you run aground.
So whether you get that fix via compass bearings, radar ranges or the GPS (and insuring that position's depth it says that you are at is in agreement with your Fathometer.) Use them wisely.
