Captain Jack's Complete Navigationby Jack I. Davis, Joe Kolb (Illustrator), John P. Kaufman (Editor)
After traveling thousands of miles on the water and teaching hundreds of navigation and boating courses, Captain Jack has put his vast experience into
Captain Jack's Complete Navigation is a combination of Captain Jack's Basic Navigation and Captain Jack's Celestial Navigation. This is truly the most complete and easy-to-understand navigation package you will own.
After traveling thousands of miles on the water and teaching hundreds of navigation and boating courses, Captain Jack has put his vast experience into this excellent book. Filled with knowledge, sea stories, and humorous anecdotes, this book is not only a learning tool but also thoroughly enjoyable to read. He has even thrown in a few boating lessons to help you at sea.
Captain Jack takes the reader through each phase of navigation by first explaining, in detail, the steps needed to complete each phase. This is followed by a list of questions to answer, using your new found knowledge. After you have completed the questions, you can check your answers at the end of each chapter. All the calculations are accomplished with simple, grade school math using an inexpensive calculator and basic navigation tools.
If you believe you do not need these Old Time navigational skills in this modern age of electronic navigation, Captain Jack makes this suggestion to you: "Tape a mirror below your GPS display. When the electronics fail, you can look in the mirror and see exactly who is lost."
