Re: Any Ideas

George,

On that particular day, the waters of Chesapeake Bay were nearly flat, the wind was steady for most of the day, which translated into very little fore to aft hull movement. That led me to believe the overall accuracy of the GPS SOG was quite reliable. That 10.1 maximum speed was held for about 20 minutes, which also leads me to believe it was a valid reading.

Cheers,

Gary
