If you know of a text that walks you through doing a compass check, I would be grateful for the citation. I want to compile an aide memoire and that is definitely something that needs to go in.

If you take a navigation class through Boat US, US Sailing, ASA, or the US Power Squadrons...all very inexpensive...you'll learn how to do it in the course.

Deviation card, swinging a compass, etc., aren't a number of these things in Chapman's "Piloting & Seamanship"? *It's been a long time since I've read it, and I gave away our copy of Chapman's to our Danish son-in-law.

Chapman's is the one book I read cover-to-cover before we left to go cruising, carried it with us and referred to it often. *Lots of information in there. *

In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

Amazon says that they are releasing the 66th ed. of Chapman's Piloting & Seamanship soon. I wonder what has changed from the 65th ed?

There is a new buoy: emergency wreck. Could be something on AIS.
