Let me add more information, if this helps. From the Current Tables, current velocity is 3.48 Ebb, and Ebb direction is 266 degrees TRUE.
Does this help? Thanks.[/QUOTE]
Well...yeah, Information regarding a 3.5 kn current would have been useful.
Any more rabbits in the hat?
So this is a compound problem... Set and Drift... and Leeway.
You need to compute the course to steer using the set and drift.... This is where your, time, distance and speed now become a factor....
Then apply the leeway... after.... you figure out the CST from the set and drift problem
Don't forget to use TVMDC..to go from true to mag..or visa versa..
Normally when I see these course books...they give you a deviation table to work with too...keep looking..I'll bet you it's there somewhere.
here's a you tube video for ya ... he could have done this a little better..but you get the idea.
