  • Sun sights

    Does anyone have a worked example where they crossed a sun sight with a mer pass. I'm fine with the maths it's when it comes to plotting on graph paper.

    Hey Lewis - I might have something that can help. Am on ship but will be in Korea with a good Internet connection in a couple days. Could email you one I've done with a bit of a 'how-to' guide on the plotting etc.

    Check it's right with someone else too just to be safe

      In simplest terms, assuming you have a base DR position and are wanting to cross them to add the position lines together for a better fix, then you need to 'adjust' the position times to match by running them forward or backward along your course by the time difference to get to your fix time. I'm presuming you are wanting to run them to Noon?
