Buy it and you will shower me with praise!! (G) I did all my navigation chart work in the cockpit in seconds and never used a parallel rule in 6 years of cruising. Next to the miracle cloth this is the holy grail of under $20 must have boat items!! This and some dividers are all you need.

For those of you who I've made curious...here's the one page "operators manual".

Oh yeah? Please post a photo of yourself on here and Giu will take the lead out of your pencil, if ya get my drift. (just kiddin') Welcome. Glad you found something to get excited about right away. I'm still waiting for Camaraderie to do his blindfolded GPS test in my old Ford truck before I become "orgasmic" and I'm the one with the truck at risk. Oh well.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Cam, please spare us the details of how, when and with who, you use that "head gear".
