The best navigators aren't sure where they are until they get there--and then they're still not sure.    - Jimmy Buffett

  

Waypoints

I've collected a few waypoints over the years that I've stored in my GPS, and they are listed here for future reference.  But be aware that a GPS is not substitute for knowing how to navigate.  A GPS like any electronic device can malfunction or cease to operate, and where are you then?

 

Always supplement a GPS with the following:

--Hand lead and line to determine depth of water

--Log chip and line to determine speed

--Watch to determine time

--Compass to determine direction

--Charts and pilot books for the coast to be cruised

--Parallel rules, dividers, and pencils

--Tide and current tables

--Sextant and navigation tables (when going offshore)
