Mendoza Star in 1967 had no radar, and we were on Bs As to Callao through the Magellans and the Patagonian Passage. There were some smashing cartoons on the bridge ( sometimes you can hear the breakers..etc.). But I learned a lot about using a ship's whistle and a stopwatch in the Smythe narrows. And the theory works.
