Same as a plotting sheet? YES

It is called "Universal Plotting Sheet, VP-OS

If you have "Bowditch" American Practical Navigator, Pub 9, Then you have the tables.

Are there Lights & Towers in that part of the world?? Probably only if you have an excellent imagination...

You need vol II or go and get the new Bowditch. Or download it from nga.mil/portal/site/maritime/
Downloading it only costs you time & effort.

I have gotten bits and pieces of it for the stuff I happened to be interested in reading about at the time, mostly chapters 15 - 20 or so. That stuff doesn't seem to have changed, except that my edition (1977) seems to have more exercises.

Well at least download the tables and print out the ones you want to use and put them in a binder.

ooh....

Anyway what's the next problem? I think the most important thing for me to learn is to read the given values well and use them, as opposed to making up my own numbers. Methods aren't as useful when you arbitrarily filter input data

Note: Use a universal chart for this.

Or try this one. Your vessel is on a course of 343°T at 14 kts. At 2156 a light bears 320.5°T and at 2217 the light bears 298°T. At what time and at what distance off will your vessel be when abeam of the light?




Hint: This is a 7/10th Rule... You can victor it or just do the math.
