    Re: Ebbco - Antares sextant
    From: Hewitt Schlereth
    Date: 2009 Nov 13, 10:05 -0400

    Last year I tried to find the manufacturer - East Berks Boat Company -
    and, even with an assist from George Huxtable who lives in England,
    was unable to do so. On the net I found an address and wrote to them,
    but the letter came back - "Addressee unknown."
    
    I used the EBBCO at sea for three years -1972 through1975. Then I
    bought a metal sextant. I really liked the EBBCO. It was cheap, it was
    rugged and it did the job.
    
    The only problem I had with it was that the shades went opaque after
    many years in storage, but I was able to find one last year on eBay
    which had good shades and now have a serviceable one.  Also, the one
    from eBay gave me an additional Allen wrench for adjusting the
    mirrors. Other spare parts, too.
    
    I haven't seen one recently on eBay, but I haven't been actively looking either.
