Sequitur is now in Patagonia, and we have been finding the charts of the Chilean coast very accurate.

|VetMike||Beautiful! I am curious about where you think the error was? 1.5 miles is a long way off when 10 meters is considered satisfactory for a GPS. Do you think it was the Mexioan charts (many older charts are not accurate), the chartplotter or Goggle Earth? I am asking because there have been reports of grossly inaccurate position date from GPS.|
