    Re: Bris sextant
    From: Nels Tomlinson
    Date: 2004 Nov 7, 07:09 +1500

    According to the Wikipedia article I linked to in an earlier thread,
    Lundin is the culprit.  That article also says: ``A three page article
    on the Bris sextant appeared in Yachting Monthly
    (http://www.yachtingmonthly.com/) magazine, June 1997.''
    
    Can anyone easily find that article?  Wonder if it has any more info
    than the Wikipedia?
