Re: Electronics and Navigation Workshop - online?

Claire, I can't claim to be an expert (laughing), but after a couple of months of quarantine, I might be able to simulate one! I use Navionics aboard RIPTIDE, and have found it to be excellent for my uses. I'm caught between wishing I had an instruction book and/or just fooling around with it to figure out some of the more interesting and unusual capabilities, though.

That's great Pete,
do you want to be an expert or ask a question...or both.  <g>

Hey Coots,
since it looks like staying home is a good way to stay healthy, and since we all have computer access (or we wouldn't be here) what about taking the electronics workshop on-line?  Would the pre-enlisted experts be willing to try it that way?  Would folks with questions be willing to post them on the forum?  I hope the answer is yes, and I hope that all workshop 'traffic' will be cc'ed to the TSCA-Puget forum as well, we all want to learn.
stay well

Due to concerns about the Coronavirus the Workshop scheduled for next
Saturday, the 21st, in Toledo has been postponed. At this time I've set
a TENTATIVE new date for the Workshop on May 30th. I hope things settle
down by then, but if not we'll still try to do the workshop sometime
before the Salish 100. If the virus is still disrupting everything as
the Salish 100 approaches there probably won't be a Salish 100 this
year... <Sigh>

Take care of yourselves, and wash your hands!
