Sorry if this has already been asked... but didn't read the full 15 pages of posts... although I should.. LOL
Was thinking about picking up a platic training sextant.... what are your thoughts on it for training and possible usage in the lifeboat afterwards. Is it worth the money?

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but do any of you have experience with the Freiberger Yacht Sextant or the ASTRA III B sextant. I realize the the Freiberger is smaller and somewhat more expensive but it is not from China, (products from which I prefer not to buy). Any thought about the quality and functionality of these. Thanks

Actually; Mark I eyeballs come as a set with a Working Brain.
I believe that the key word there is "Working".

Common sense seems to be an all to uncommon. Not long ago we heard someone hailing the CG. We switched up to 22A to ease-drop on the ensuing conversation which involved a concerned boater that wanted to let the CG know that, according to his GPS, they had put the outer marker at the mouth of the Manatee River in the wrong place! The CG watch stander patiently thanked him for the tip.
