 David Burch posted January 28, 2020 07:50 PM                   glad to help, but you need to post the question here along with any needed images.I want to stress however that the problem we are looking at here is not from any Starpath materials, but rather one you have run across from another source.

 Capt Steve Miller posted January 30, 2020 07:50 AM                   First on #6 you indicate that you used 197°M + 15°W to get 212°T. Going from M to T you Subtract Westerly Variation, thus the True is i82°. The Compass Rose on the chart would show that as well.Second, for #9 I got an estimated position of 41° 31.5' N, 70° 53.4' W for 0759 by working this problem on a paper chart. This position is based on the assumption that we are on our proposed course line between G "11" and R "8".I hope that this helps. From: Starpath
