@browncoat - The problem with that is that since it's so much cheaper, more accurate and just plain simpler to use GPS, everyone is switching over to it. So, if your GPS stopped working for whatever reason and you were on a relatively new boat, you probably wouldn't have access to LORAN anyway.
I agree that people should keep it in mind as a backup, but sailors are generally pretty cautious people. I don't think GPS is actually going to fail any time soon.
It seems like the technology has a lot of backups built into the system.
In a general sense, it's good to keep LORAN just because an additional backup is always good and the infrastructure is already in place, but I don't think the average person on the water is ever going to use it, or even know how to use it.
