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 pre-calculated, 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.
