    Re: Left-handed sextants

    Steve,
    
    Bruce Bauer, in his The Sextant Handbook, wonders the same thing, and shows an 
    antique left-handed sextant that he found. He makes the argument that a 
    left-handed sextant makes it easier and quicker for a right-hander to write 
    down his sights, which makes some sense. On the whole, though, I think I 
    agree with Bill.
    
    I wonder if there are any lefties who would care to comment? Do you find using 
    a "right-handed" sextant easy and natural?
