    C.Plath Parts
    From: Robert Eno

    Couple of questions: 
    1. Now that C.Plath is no longer in the business of sextant production, can one still get parts for them?  Where? I know that Cassens and Plath and C.Plath (pre-1993; before they made all of those "improvements") had a lot of interchangeable parts but not all of their individual components are compatible.
    2. How is Cassens and Plath doing these days?. They too, make a superb sextant but like C.Plath, they are expensive, which prompts a third question:
    3. What happened to C.Plath?  Why couldn't they continue to make a go of it? I know that sales were down considerably and production costs were up, but if Cassens & Plath are still viable, why couldn't C.Plath stay afloat?
    Someone out there likely has the answers. If so, I'd like to hear from you.
