Thanks for the reminder SD, I knew I'd forgotten to do something today.

Aw come on, you shouldn't be unkind to the simple minded. Other than the manic depression and the paranoid schizophrenia I'm fine.

Chronometer ? CHRONOMETER ?? Tools of the devil !! New fangled bloody contraptions, nothing wrong with a sun dial if you ask me. You take my word for it young fella, they will never catch on. Now in my day.....mutter mutter grumble belch fart........

sailaway21 The time signals are to check the rate on the chronometer. Without a record of the rate it's just an expensive clock. That's why the BBC gives a time-tick at the top of every hour. Simple and effective.

sailaway21 Cam hits close to a service that could probably make some money. Charts are often only as good as the most recent corrections from the Notice to Mariners. Having spent quite a few years doing just that, I can see a need for a place to purchase a chart complete with all of the NtM corrections since printing. It's not uncommon to return to a port after six months and find that the CG has rearranged the entrance buoys! All the locals know about it, but you've been in the Med. Some charts go for decades before being re-printed and while the corredtions in the interim may be few, they may be significant. How do the chart plotters deal with this; all new software?
