Re: sextant practice
I had forgotten all about that. Did I have mine on board, or did you have yours. I've since been handed down a Davis Mark 15, I haven't taken it out of the case yet to give it a try. I've been thinking about buying a three armed protractor to plot a position on the chart with relative angles. That makes the sextant a pretty useful tool for coastal fixes, well if the GPS quits working.
I had the good one that I inherited. Picked up the plastic one in the giveaway bin at our club... Plastic one was fine to practice with.
