Yes, and a hand-bearing compass and parallel rules and dividers and paper charts and magnifier for reading the charts and ... well... they may become antiques someday, right?

What do you mean, "someday"?
I love old-school! Still have some of my dad's charts from when he was a tug pilot helping to turn the Dodge Islands into the Port of Miami.

Re: What song describes you boat best.

Our boat is named Dear Prudence after the beautiful Beatles song of the same name.

(Alas, I cannot post a link to the song as I do not have the requisite 10 posts. )
