Navigation Contest Results

Below are the questions and answers for last month's Navigation Contest.

  1. Weems & Plath manufactures navigation tools to meet the needs of all sea-going navigators. Our professional 3 - Arm Protractor, Item # 116, designed for plotting the position of a ship on navigation charts is composed of a circular scale connected to three arms. The center arm is fixed, while the outer two are rotatable, capable of being set at any angle relative to the center one. What U.S. Naval Captain invented this instrument in 1801?

    B. Joseph Huddart

  2. In the 1400's, the King of England, Henry VI, insisted on mounting large guns on his ship. Due to their size, these guns were unable to be mounted the traditional way, on the forecastle and aftcastle decks of the ship. A French shipbuilder solved the problem by putting small doors in the side of the ship and mounting the cannons inside the ship. These doors were opened when the cannon was to be used. The French word for door was porte which later became Anglicized to port. In time, this term was used to describe any opening in a ship's side, whether for a cannon or not. What French shipbuilder was commissioned to solve the problem?

    D. James Baker

Below is the list of names of those who answered both questions correctly. One person has been randomly selected from these names as the winner. We will send that person their $100 gift certificate.
James Ellard is the $100.00 Weems and Plath gift certificate winner for the November 2013 Trivia Contest.
