The style of $100 handheld GPS I was thinking of does not have ANY chart plotting capability, so "some sense" as I meant it implied being able to keep track of where you are on a proper chart (using fixes from the GPS to confirm your dead reckoning).

The other part of applying some sense is to stay well clear of hazards, not try to cut any corners, etc... I suspect that the grounding depicted here probably was a chartplotter-assisted grounding...

Gary1 Somewhere in one of my books, the GPS is described as an expensive device that will tell you exactly where you've gone aground.

The problem with an inexpensive handheld GPS is that you really can't rely on them to show you where not to go; there is not enough chart information. The same can hold true for expensive plotters; I know of at least one reef that my Raymarine RL series plotter does not do justice to.



No need for a pre-survey haulout eh Halekai!?! Sea-Trial might be a bit difficult tho!
