The mention of John Harrison reminds me of a wonderful book called "Longitude". The true story of the invention of the first accurate timepiece which made it possible for navigators to determine longitude. A must read for folks like us, interested in the maritime arts.

There are times when I'm extremely proud of my species.

Thanks for that, Newty.
