    It is perfectly true that you cannot "justify" the price of a fine sextant
    for navigating a small craft. But, if you have the money to spend, the
    pleasure of using it (or just holding it) is worth something.
    
    My response is this-
    
    Rodney is entitled to his opinion, but to me it smacks somewhat of
    instrumental snobbery.
    
    If I could afford both, I think I would take my plastic sextant to sea, and
    reserve my expensive metal sextant to decorate the mantelpiece at home.
