Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0914025139, Paperback)

This Work Book provides over 100 exercises with answers covering all aspects of small-craft navigation on inland and coastal waters. These are practical problems that all navigators should know how to solve.

Topics include:

* Piloting
* Chart reading and plotting
* Voyage planning
* Dead reckoning
* Compass use
* Waypoint selection
* Special publications
* Rules of the road
* Route design
* Lights and buoys
* Tides and currents
* Electronic fixes
* Depth sounding navigation

The level of the exercises is about that used in the USCG 100-Ton masters exam, which in turn is about the same used in the navigation certification programs of US Sailing, ASA, CYA and RYA. These practice problems are, however, designed to be practical and instructive, not just training exercises for certification exams. This Workbook is used by several navigation schools around the country.

Selections are provided from each of these special publications along with exercises to insure their full use is mastered:

* Tide Tables
* Current Tables
* US Coast Pilot
* USCG Light List
* USCG Notices to Mariners

The exercises that require a chart use nautical training chart No. 18465tr, available at reduced price from NOAA chart dealers or by online order at nauticalcharts.noaa.gov or starpath.com/18465.

You can also work the chart problems with a free electronic chart (Raster Navigation Chart, RNC) number 18465, available at no charge for Memory-Map Navigator from starpath.com/18465. The echart from NOAA (starpath.com/getcharts) can be viewed by any of several free echart viewer programs listed in this book. You can also use any full echart navigation program of your choice. We encourage navigators to solve the chart problems with both traditional paper plotting as well as electronically, using electronic bearing lines and range rings.

The main reference for the problems is also a Kindle book: Inland and Coastal Navigation, 2nd Edition. A related Kindle work book is called: Navigation Exercises for Practice Underway.
