The Circle Rigs

Capt. Paul,†

I was wondering the coordinates for the circle rigs out of Belle pass. This is a group of rigs in a circle with numerous artificial reefs made up of old oil rigs and military APC’s. I believe it is approximately 30 miles due south of the pass?

Thanks,TB

Of course a smart phone with a GPS program will work to a degree, but it will not be as accurate if you use your GPS with the wide area augmentation system (WAAS) feature activated.

DGPS vs. WAAS: What is better in a GPS?

Dear Capt. Paul:

I am now running my Global Positioning System unit mated to a DGPS receiver while in offshore locations, but I am considering getting another GPS unit that I would be using in interior lakes away from the coastal waters. I am also considering one of the current handheld units offered.

I would like to see a comparison/discussion on DGPS vs. WAAS accuracy, and is WAAS available for all of Louisiana Mississippi and Texas? As you know a separate DGPS receiver can cost more than what several standard GPS unit would cost. Plus, the connecting cables make it a little inconvenient.

I would like to avoid that situation, if WAAS is as accurate.
