I remember using LORAN when I had a timeshare on a 32’ Bayliner.

Kelsey was about 4, I think, so that would make it 26 years ago.

Dad would take readings every day at noon with the sextant, but he never taught me how to use it. LORAN came later and we all thought it was just the cat's meow. Better than anything else we had going in those days. From all the cursing I used to hear, I think he preferred the sextant.
