    Hello Brad,

    yes a good translation. It is ancient Spanish
    Cosmography and " Map maker " are slightly different, but yes.


    The nautical instruments and tools embarked were:

    •23 cartas de marear hechas en pergamino por Nuño García
    •6 pares de compases
    •21 cuadrantes de madera
    •6 astrolabios de metal
    •1 astrolabio de madera
    •35 agujas de marear
    •4 cajas grandes para cuatro agujas
    •18 relojes de arena (ampolletas)

    that is:
    • 23 nautical charts made on parchment by Nuño García.
    • 6 pairs of compass
    • 21 wooden quadrants
    • 6 metal astrolabs
    • 1 wooden astrolabe
    • 35  magnetic compass
    • 4 large boxes for four compass
    • 18 hourglasses

    In addition, the steering wheel or helm had not yet been invented.  A picture of the "pinzote" of the replica of the Nao Victoria, that I visited in Getaria.
    And the chamber of the captain.

    It is amazing that they circumnavigated the Earth in the XVI century with these nutshells
