    Dear Zed,

    > So, is there any freely availble texts or do I have to buy an expensive book?

    If you already know something, there is a very good free source
    to expand your knowledge: this is the archiv of the
    "old list" Nav-L.

    But you have to hurry. For the reasons that escape me, they decided
    to stop that "old list" in the end of May, 2006, and the fate of this
    is unclear. If you have enough knowledge of computers, I would recommend
    you to try to copy (download) the whole old Nav-L archive.

    There are several other free or almost free sources.
    There is free Bowditch online
    (A link was present in the "old archive"
    this is where I downloaded it from. I hope it was not a part of the
    old archive, and will remain available for download.

    (The so-called "new" or "experimental list" NavList (where we are now) to
    which we were forced to
    move "successfully", instead of the useful things like Bowditch contains
    the links to
    Ulysse Nardin "chronometers":-(

    It depends on your specific interests. Some of the list members, for
    example are interested in "archeonavigation". For these people there
    is a great source on the Mystic Seaport Library web page:
    I mean Norrie's complete navigation manual (early XIX century).

    It is free for reading on your computer screen, and you can print it
    one page at a time, but to get the whole thing in one file you have
    to pay this library and they will send you the file.
