    I've never taken my sextant when I was navigating a boat, because I was always flying back and didn't want the hassle. I used whatever was aboard, without a problem. Now I know there wouldn't have been any difficulty.

    Several yeares ago, on a return flight from Maine, I had a Davis Mk. 15 with me, a carry on piece.

    The security peson at check in, a lady, asked what was in the ehite plastic case. I told her it was "a sextasnt", to which she responsed with a double take or blank look. When I opened the case for her she said "oh a navigastional instrument", to which I responsed yes, going on my way, without additional question.

    So much for my adventures with the air transport of sextants.
