    Byron: My main input to Navlist is for training, and you may notice that most is piloting.
    In deep water any reasonable fix will do. I pointed out that the Celestial line of Position
    is and works the same as the Navaid compass bearing. That is my reason to expand
    and toying with Celestial LOP. While in hazardous waters the difference between
    < or>180 degrees is of great importance. In deep water who cares in or out? The reason my
    Franklin Piloting Technique being excepted was the good black board teaching of compass
    fixes in the class and the compass/gyro bad fixes on YP’S at sea. (YP’S small craft).
    Here at Easton’s Beach Newport. Practice or novelist Navigators have a good near 90 degree
    horizon, if you know where you are, and your triangle fix center is not where you are,
    would it be nice and encouraging to know that your fix is possible outside
    or be discouraged without this knowledge. What do you think?
