    The sextant was an Astra IIIB. I know because we sold it to the producer, who bought another for himself. We thought it interesting that he opened the box just as we had sent it. You would have thought he would have at least looked to see what it was like before shooting the scene.

    Hello!

    I'm yet to watch this film: "All is lost" - my collegues mentioned it recently. When I asked for some explanations they said Robert Redford was using (apparently) the Davies Mk15. He was also shown going some CN.

    Regards,
