To rely totally on your gps and let everything else slip is surely the very reverse of good seamanship and sound navigational practice.
Quite. I'm aware that I do it more than I should, and I do try to back it up with other techniques. I probably wouldn't come a cropper if the GPS disappeared without warning, but I would find it more stressful than I really ought to.
