Thanks for the offer guys. I don't think enough has changed since my '84 ed. to go for a new one. I wish I'd looked at the pub date on vol 2 at west marine. I know it was printed by the gov., whichever agency replaced DMAHC, as I saw their logo on the cover and it was the "new" traditional green. I carry vol 2 on the boat and leave vol 1 at home. You know you've got an old Bowditch if it's blue bound.

Catamount, have they fixed that online edition yet? Last time I was there, they didn't have the 35MB version at all, they told me "None of our users an download something that big." Honest.

And they had a duplicate chapter number, and the page numbers weren't matched to Acrobat, making all the indexing, etc., a vague proposition.

I see from looking at the individual chapters, that they still haven't figured out how to match document page numbers, and Acrobat page numbers. This, disappointingly, not unexpected from an agency that doesn't know how to spell it's own acronym. ("NGA" really is "NGIA" but I guess the embroiderers all charge by the letter.)

Re: Owners Manual for Tamaya Sextant M#631

Thia is an ancient thread, but in case anyone is looking for the Bowditch ("American Practical Navigator"), as of April 19, 2012, I successfully downloaded it here:

Maritime Safety Information

This is the 2002 Bicentennial Edition, numbering 882 pages. Look for the small link under "complete" which reads "The American Practical Navigator (35 MB)".

In case this link becomes dead, check in the "External Links" section of this wiki page:

The same document can be read online by chapter here.
Happy navigating.
