Re: Review of my season on Georgian Bay

OH,OH,OH,OH. Also forgot another first. First time I've felt the need to plot a course and distance on a chart, rather than just using pilotage and the chart plotter. At the beginning of the night leg, the chartplotter turned itself off a couple of times for no reason I could tell. So we kept a running plot on the chart just in case the thing crapped out completely. Sad to say the thing worked fine for the rest of the night. Happy to say the estimated distances were pretty accurate.
