This edition of The American Practical Navigator, Bowditch, is offered by Celestaire and Paradise Cay Publications. This is the most contemporary update of Bowditch, the definitive work on navigation. Nathanial Bowditch first published this encyclopedic work in 1802. Right through the last two centuries over 75 editions, almost 1,000,000 copies, of Bowditch have been published by the United States Government. It has lived because it has combined the most efficient technologies of each and every generation of navigator. This edition includes the up to date advances in electronic navigation and digital charting technology. It also covers nonelectronic navigation such as celestial, plotting and dead reckoning. Bowditch contains a large number of tables that have been valued for years by practicing navigators. Bowditch is carried on the bridge of each and every U.S. Navy ship and must be the mainstay of any serious navigator’s library. Paradise Cay and Celestaire’s present this commercial edition of Bowditch which is a complete copy of the up to date Government edition.
