You can still "fine tune" the throttle with good miles however, if available, and you can then make more accurate round trip comparisons to land vehicles, regardless of current or wind.

A level (or even a semi-circular canal) might be better for checking trim balance, and anything that floats (i.e. a loogie) can give you a snapshot of the current.
