Capt Len, Isn't it amazing what a boat commonly sailed without back in the 1970s, unlike today. My first ocean crossing boat had a stereo, which was an absolute necessity, an RDF, VHF, sextant and the depth sounder was the keel. Now everyone has to have a floating condo... not much adventuring there. But a mid ocean non-adventure keeps the wife happier.

So right. and quickly changed. Came across the Atlantic with only a small transistor radio and my next vessel (CSS Hudson) had the first non military Sat nav and we went back out and maped the MidAtlantic Ridge (definitive plate tectonics). However , there are still unmade mistakes out there for learning .
