I have a CPlath Trommel Sextant SN 38786 (see attached) that I would like to trade for a Freiberger Yacht Sextant. I use sextants on a daily basis while sailing long distances teaching new (and a lot of not so new) sailors about offshore sailing including a serious working introduction into celestial. The CPlath (my second one) is too fine of an instrument to let the students swing around. Also, for a new shooter the CPlath is much harder to use than the Freiberger I have.
I am located in Germany, when I am not sailing in the Atlantic or Med, so let's consider shipping.
