Summary

If you want to learn how to navigate with GPS and Chart plotters safely' then this book is for you.

 
Dead reckoning navigation was a wonderful and fulfilling ‘art’ form. Now that GPS is here to stay, there is no point whatsoever in having a sextant and tables on board and even the compass has become an aid rather than an essential. With the advent of chart plotters, free chart plotter navigation systems for laptops, your mobile communication device almost certainly having GPS built in, and probably Google or Bing maps, the necessity for paper charts is greatly diminished but not totally extinguished.

 
Whilst even with the most sophisticated of marine electronics there are still a few issues like tides and charts and the aim of this book is to simplify all those issues and get you heading for new, different, far away places.

    First, before I started writing my book, I considered that people would like to know the opposite. The reason for this is, most of the times we would really like to know and define things and subjects to their right side, as we always do! For example, what is this, and what is the difference between this and the other facts or things that creates the comparison.

    The micromassager is a bone ball attached to a bone or wooden handle by a steel shaft.
    
    Traditionally, these instruments were made out of ivory. Hardly appropriate these days, of course. These current instruments are beautifully handcrafted from sustainable, sterilised New Zealand beef bone and native hardwood, and the bone balls have similar properties to ivory in therapeutic application. The construction is deceptively simple in that the results obtained are beyond the scope of ordinary acupressure. These traditional type instruments are in fact rather ingenious.
