When I took ASA 105 last spring we turned in a chart along with the fill-in-the-dots sheet, and we were graded partly on our marks on the chart.

Re: ASA Coastal Nav Exam - HELP

Dumb question. What program are you using to make marks, lines, labels on the charts?

A running fix is standard methodology in coastal navigation.

I use OpenCPN to do the plotting and Elements to add the labels.

In real life I use a pencil and a Portland Plotter.

I opened the chart PDF from the link that I posted earlier and selected a reasonable resolution. Then, because I used to be the presentation guru at my job, I copied a screen shot of the PDF into PPT.

Thank you

Why the "dumb question" comment?

Did that refer to your question in a self-deprecating way? Sorry if I misunderstood.

I quite like using OpenCPN and some the tools it has to do "traditional navigation. I am trying to get them include a labeling plugin, but to no avail. I use Elements for web posting and PowerPoint for classroom work and publishing. An earlier link is to the PowerPoint notes for teaching the running fix in class. I was able to use different coloured lines for different LOP's and the course line to prevent confusing them.
