    Ebbco plastic sextant. was; Re: Using star-star distances
    From: George Huxtable

    I've come across a bit more information on the Ebbco sextant, from UK 
    sources.
    
    As the Plastimo Antares, it's offered at
    www.caleymarineonline.co.uk , at a cost of  �102.07 before tax, which is a 
    bit less than US$200.
    
    However, what looks like exactly the same thing, and is still named as an 
    "Ebbco sextant" (no mention of Plastimo) is at-
    sailgb.com , priced at only �68 before tax or they quote $122.40. Does this 
    mean, perhaps, that Ebbco still exists and is producing sextants? Or is this 
    old stock that's being sold off? Who knows? I'll try to discover more.
    
    George.
