Thanks to Autocad wizard, Matt Munger, the navigation course navigational charts are now available for your inspection. Matt used a good portion of the course that was designed in 1999 and fitted them to suit the pond plans supplied by the Indianapolis Admirals for the new pond. He asked me to pass along his thanks to those folks. You'll note the "Pacific Vortex" - a large fountain in the pond, is a "hats off" to Clive Cussler, author and discoverer of the H.L. Hunley.

Feel free to print them out and practice with them!

The combination chart of all three courses below is just shown for example. It is recommended that you go to the above links and download and print out the proper chart for the size sub you will be running, since the courses are somewhat different depending on the size boat you have.
