    Re: Polhemus computer available now on ebay

    I recommend these for plotting fixes easily in a small boat. Also interesting for those that think about flight celnav. I show how this is done on my website at:

    When you look at the price they’re asking on eBay now for some of the silliest items, $40 ‘Buy Now’ seems quite a good price for a Polhemus.  They can’t have produced that many.  They could turn out to be like a Bygrave by the year 2060, if anyone’s still around.  I’ve got one, but I’m ashamed to say it’s one of the items in my ‘to be used when I get around to it’ cupboard.  Everything about it is great apart from the colour of the case, which is a yucky flesh pink reminiscent of a CPR mannequin.  DaveP
