An old standby

About Me Gearhead, Outdoor Enthusiast, Professional

Comments about Weems & Plath Parallel Rolling Plotter:

I grew up with this as the primary plotting tool on board. Underway, it's always within reach. I find it the easiest to use compared to triangles and parallel rules, and more functional than parllel rules.

    Comments about Weems & Plath Parallel Rolling Plotter:

    I have been using this tool to teach marine navigation class for 10 years. Over this time quality has gone down considerably. The last dozen I purchased don't even roll straight. In tens years they have gone from the industry standard to garbage. I hope Weems and Plath can get their act together, because I am about to look for a new standard.
