Re: Traditional Navigation

If you have a gps and a chart of the area you can get a pretty good fix on your position using the lattitude and longtitude. Taking sightings of landmarks such as lights or structures with a hand held compass will also help. Charts also give you depth, channel markers and other info to help you. Have fun.
