    Re: How to Use a Plastic Sextant
    From: John Brown
    Date: 2011 Jan 15, 02:37 -0800

    I have never owned or even had my hands on a plastic sextant, but I bought this book out of curiosity and fully endorse all the positive reviews posted here.

    As the owner of two good nautical sextants, a C.Plath and a Freiberger Yacht version, I think it would be interesting to see what sort of PRACTICAL results could be obtained at sea with a plastic sextant in a 36 foot sailing boat. On the "keep it simple" principle I would probably go for a Davis Mark 3.

    Regards

    John B
