"Does anyone else around here keep and use nautical antiques?"
Guilty. Also have a Walker Log (Excelsior IV, sling version), several sextants, RDFs, lorans, early GPS's, old VHFs and HF radios, assorted rigging parts, clocks and barometers, and assorted other maritime memorabilia.
Only old stuff still "in use" aboard are a couple of Plath sextants, two lorans, and two RDFs.
I guess I'm "around here" if you're in Maryland....I'm based in Northern Virginia.
