Like Ken, I too use the Chart plotter while coastal cruising, with the proper paper chart next to me to follow along with. I enjoy letting my first officers take the helm while cruising and watch to see how they use both tools, most of the time they are concentrating solely on the plotter, this is when I turn it off and ask them where we are and what is coming up next. The look of confusion is priceless! I think the younger generation is relying on these plotters too much and not working on the core navigation skills. In 4 years of Maritime School we had 1 semester of electronic nav., granted that was 20 years ago, when all this stuff was just coming out.
