Readers learn how to construct equipment as simple as a compass using a dish of water and a tin can lid, or as complex as a working octant. The book explains sun navigation and the tools used to practice it. Would you believe an empty audiocassette case can function as your sextant or that you can use your finders to determine the exact points of a compass?
Also included are interesting stories and quizzes that test your knowledge of boating, sailing and navigation.
Filled with practical knowledge and ingenuity, The Lo-Tech Navigator is a great book to have in your ship's library.
