Navigation - Common Sense and Simple Tools

Here's the opening quote in "The Annapolis Book of Seamanship: Volume 4: Sailboat Navigation" by John Rousmaniere himself:

"The word 'navigation' intimidates many people. The skills and equipment used to navigate a boat safely often seem too complicated and too scientific. But that's not the case. Safely finding your way in a boat takes nothing more than some common sense and simple tools."
We need more guys like JR. Sailing would be a lot more popular, I think. What do you say?
