    Sounds like they are sadly lacking one Captain Bligh.

    "I don't think this has come up yet on NavList."  Oh yes it has.  Here:

    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"
