    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).
