Then there is the "what is a GPS?" question.

As mentioned, some might do very well with a texaco road map, compass that works, and not screwed by deviation wise if floating about in the Cheasapeak, puget sound, or a larger, what I would call larger lake, not talking a Great lake mind you......... but also as mentioned, Columbus supposidly did not have a map, altho there is some thought the religous sect he belonged to had more map info than originally thought to how the world was at the time........

In the end, not worth dealing with darwin issues, as I am sure we all have a darwin award coming for some really dumb thing we all have done in our lives, like signing up to post and read drivel like this on sailinet! eek!
