One of my boats had no electricity, nav. lights were kerosene but I had two $ 10.00 quartz clocks for longitude, checked with the short wave radio (batteries). Position was calculated with sextant and tables offshore plus goniometry when available along the coast.
The main compass was inside but I looked at my handheld compass from time to time.
Nobody thought it was difficult but there were less people crossing.
