Chichester tried a bubble sextant in his Moth, possibly a Booth, and rejected it. He wrote during WWII that he used a "marine box sextant" but that normally means a small metal canister used by explorers or in lifeboats. I expect he used a conventional marine sextant stowed in a box on the front seat of his Moth, reached through a hole in the seat-back.
