Is there any mention in the problem regarding Deviation?

Whose workbook? I have Tursi's and Pyzel's on my shelf and the CG's , someone elses?

If it's 2.9 miles and the drift is 4 degrees per mile..then 2.9 x 4 = 11.6 degrees of correction add east ..11.6 + 14 = 25.6 or 26 degrees.

145 - 26 = 119 degrees mag. So I'm thinking there's deviation somewhere?

The drift can't be 4 degrees per hour, because it only takes you 29 minutes to get there..so you'd have to halve it to 2...

Something's missing..or I need to put down the rum..
