Description: Electronics navigation systems are extremely reliable but when they do fail onboard repair at sea is rarely possible. Also, their operation depends on a continuous supply of electricity. Should this fail they will stop and unexpectedly lacking the means of position finding, chart plotting and route planning how can the modern navigator continue their passage in a safe and seamanlike manner?

3. Employ every technique using materials and equipment likely to be found on every boat.
4. Put these techniques into practice - every procedure contributes to making a safe and seamanlike passage. You can also practice beforehand to gain confidence in using them.
