    Okay I am now laughing, if they are going to use the "ancient device" to mark the ship's angle against the horizon, they may have a problem and I give this recreation a low probability of success.  Just a thought.

    George, you mentioned Bligh's voyage after the mutiny to Timor. I don't think this has come up yet on NavList. There is a group trying to recreate that voyage right now. Here's a blog article about it:

    ...which includes this line:
    "They’re using an ancient device called a sextant to mark the ship’s angle against the horizon"
