Re: Traditional Navigation
Doing coastal nav with hand compass and charts is easier on a boat than doing similar on land because you almost always have a clear line of sight to your "nav aids" (buoys, towers, etc). So, if you can do it on land, it should be very easy on a boat.
I agree, noon sights with a sextant is easy. I have lost my sight reduction tables for lon and lat evening sights (do they still print them?) but am sure they are online somewhere.
