I have an Astra III sextant box in new condition available. During a training cruise a sextant was observed flying over the side into the deep as the celestial professor yelled "a sextant without a box is useless". The story has it that he found a sextant unaccompanied on deck as a cadet worked his sight reduction. If you have an Astra and need a box drop me a line.....actually this isn't the box from that story...but it's a good story.
I also have another instrument box of some type thats about the same size as a sextant box but was for some other type of instrument. Its in average shape. If you need a project box this may be useful.
Located in RI. Trades for useless vacuum tube radios or morse keys considered.
