Re: Where's Your Sextant?

The last time I used a sextant was in '75 along with dead reckoning and a radio direction finder. I ditched the sextant and the RDF about the same time I got rid of my slide rule and my Loran. I respect the history of these devices, but I know that they don't provide the efficiency or accuracy of more modern tools.
