Re: Dipping a Light
Yes, the formulas yield you the distance from each object to the visible horizon, added together they give you the distance from the Light. Take a bearing draw a line that distance and bearing and you should arrive at your EP. Take a look at your depth..see if it matches up to the chart. I've come pretty close when using it. You can also use tables that are already precalculated, just match up the two known heights in a box to see the total distance. Height of tide will make a slight difference..a pitching sea will have an effect.
