    Back In Hobby: Some Questions, Please
    From: Robert

    Hi,
    
    Now that I'm retired, I would like to bring myself back up to speed
    with this great hobby.
    Was wondering about the following, as I haven't tracked any of this
    for many a year, unfortunately.
    
    a.  Are full sized frame, metal, sextants still being manufactured
    anywhere ?
    
    b.  If so, by whom, please ?
    
    c.  Irrespective of price, which are acknowledged as the "best" in
    quality now ?
    
    Guess I should probably get myself a new copy of Bowditch.
    Looking thru Google, it seems the Gov't does not print it anymore,
    although, apparently it is available from some private publisher(s).
    
    I now have the single blue covered 1962 single volume edition with the
    really nice plastic star insert pages.  I guess they don't do it like
    this anymore.
    
    All in all, confusing, as to what's available, and from who.
    
    Where would you folks suggest I go to purchase the most complete, best
    printed, and clearest, volume ?
    
    Guess I should also ask which on line source is the most complete for
    navigation related texts, etc. (other than Amazon) ?
    
    Thanks,
    Bob
