    Re: Full moon sights and lifeboat sextant accuracy

    The problem with a full moon sight is with the horizon.  With a full moon you are well past twilight so the horizon is lite by the moon.  But that is not a true horizon as the moon light does not reflect off the water alll the way to the horizon.  Or so I'm told, I've not tried it.
