    Re: Backup Celestial Navigation Kit

    I might be interested in this  “low budget” 8 day aircraft dash clock.  Buy one on ebay? What is typical cost? I’d be somewhat  reluctant to buy a timepiece on line.
     
    By the way , my 10-15 year old Timex Triathlon watch  buttons stopped working, losing about 11 seconds per 30 days. Bought a new Timex Ironman for $35 USD. Watch has gained about  1 sec in 20 days. Good enough.

    Here are a few more attachments to go with the kit list.  A complete kit can be assembled through Ebay for around $200. The budget latitude sailing kit for around $100.

    1. Ebbco and Bris.

    2. Pub 249 Sun LTA. (1 page)

    3. A rated 8 day aircraft dash clock. ( they are surprisingly accurate)

    4. Haverersine tables for Doniol Haversine reduction w/ Ix diagram. (2 pages)

    5. Paper back Trig Log tables for classic reduction.

    6. Polaris Latitude Wheeler for northern latitudes.

    7. Wet Notes and .7mm plastic mechanical pencil.

    8. Compact protractor. (Custom T Plotter)

    9. 6" Pocket Doric sliderule.

    Everything is inexpensive, light weight, and fits easily into the Ebbco case. This is better than just a get home kit. For getting home all a sailor needs is a Davis MK 3 and a Sun declination table to latitude sail with (no timing needed).
