Hi everyone,

I like to share something I found just now.

In preparing for the Geelong Week Regatta (Southern Hemisphere Largest Regatta, eqv to Cowes Week) I was plotting the course we need to do.

Then it triggered something in my head. We should be able to check the plot on the chart by using Excel calculation. When I searched the web I found a link to someone who has done it before. By accident it is a government department in Australia.

If you like to use the spreadsheet, go to this link

http://www.ga.gov.au/geodesy/datums/calcs.jsp#B&D

Download the MS EXCEL spreadsheet.

You need to select the Datum of your map in the first spreadsheet. Then use the Inverse Vincenty to calculate bearing between two coordinates.

Have fun.

Dan,

For your Westerbeke, have you tried marineengine.com?

I think I have joined this forum in the past. But now I forget the userid and password. Too many of those.

From everyone's comment, I feel a lot better when I am in the boat fixing all the broken bits by myself. Everyone are doing it too.

Like someone said: boat ownership and cruising is like fixing boats at exotic places.

That is why I am doing a longer term plan to fix my boat, and recondition all the bits as I go along. In preparation for retirement and cruising life.
