    Re: Chronometers (WAS: Re: Sextant shops in Hong-Kong?)

    Not a lot of bamboo grown in these parts...
    
    
    
    Sorry, everyone, I shouldn't be here. Coastal is my game, but the 
    Man-hoovering stuff is quite cute. I just wish we actually might have the 
    ability to make use of it.
    
    Working in all weathers on a coastal patch takes the edge away.....  bung it 
    in to the Diffed GPS and if that don't work, just follow the dot on the 
    SIMRAD..
