The art of the Navigators is pretty interesting too.

What is more impressive however is the island navigator's uncanny skill to steer by wave motion - swells reflected from islands beyond the horizons.

Very nice content, really crappy design and horrible navigation. Good post, though. :)

And that current/wave direction map made out of shells and sticks is pretty cool too!
