erps taught me how while floating off his extended backyard: Hope Island. It's interesting, and not too tough to take a noon site.
I then taught my son:
The above picture was taken aboard the Schooner Adventuress, north of Stuart Island...
A 100 foot schooner is a nice stable platform for practicing.
I was surprised that the Adventuress didn't have one, so we donated it.... Immediately, they started training the other crew members on the sextant, using the deck as a chalkboard..
It was a special moment.
