    Re: Air travel with a sextant

    I've flown with my sextant & books & sailing gear many times since
    9/11.  the nice men are always interested to see the sextant and they
    seem to understand how delicate it is.  bottom line:  not a problem at
    all to carry-on.
    ask me about checking the CO2 inflating type V PFD, and the EPIRB!
    that's more trouble.
