    Re: A Good Sextant Buy

    Goody!  Another source of information.
    Thanks.  It is a pleasure to read your
    listings and your postings.
    I can tell from your Ebay listings that
    you are knowledgeable, from your postings
    here that you are careful in packing,
    from your feedback that you keep your customers
    happy (not by calling them names when they
    call to complain!), and from your presence and
    postings here that you care about your reputation.
    Since I would like to buy a single
    decent sextant, one that I can
    maintain and be satisfied with
    for 20 to 30 years, I have to ask
    myself if I really want to go
    for the deep discount and run the
    risk of "negative surprise".
    I bet there is a greater than 50%
    chance I would be happy with the sextant
    from "that other guy", but I have to
    ask myself if the risk of opening
    the box to a total loss makes this
    him a good bet.
    You are correct in saying it is a tough
    decision.  Take a risk on a better price,
    or vote with my dollars... hmmm.
    At the moment, I'm still just looking.
