    Re: Plastic sextants and prejudice. was: GPS shortcomings.

    George,
    With that information, I found this;
    http://plastimo.com/catalogue/article.php?listnom=Navigation%7CAntares%20sextant&LangID=1&ref=21001&
    
    It looks like the same sextant; do you happen to know if it is the same or
    just a copy of the original? Thank you for the correction on the name also,
    I need to make a note of that name. I keep making the same mistake and I
    have been told before that I am wrong about that. I my not learn much, but
    when I learn it, the information sticks even if I learn it wrong.
    Robert Gainer
