    Re: Kelvin Hughes sounding sextant !

    Thanks Paul.

    I have a Bowditch and will look it up.

    Like the sextant Michael has this sextant is heavy, a truly industrial instrument. I suspect the use of a tripod may have been in mind going by the way the the large knob (handle) attaches so it can be held horizontal.

    It is the last sextant to the collection. #21. I have been biding my time awaiting something different and at an affordable price to close off the collection.

    Now to finish the display cabinet which has to be mobile as I have had requests to display some at various venues. I have one in pieces under restoration at the moment. 

    Thanks again 

    Frank
