    Re: Is Sextant a generic word?

    Once while taking sunlines from the small cliff-side parking lot at Chatham Lighthouse Beach (Massachusetts) a large bus pulled up and disgorged a number of elderly matrons taking some sort of tour. The last one off the buss walked over and and asked me if I was looking for whales. I said no, I was using the sun to figure out where I was. She immediately turned around, got back onto the bus and pulled the driver off with a map and
    insisted he show me where I was.

    The bus moved on and a few minutes later, a Coast Guard guy who was riding a lawn mower in front of the Chatham Coast Guard station came over and asked the same thing. For him, my explanation was a bit more in depth. He then looked serious and said, "Well, the latitude and longitude is on a brass plate by the flag pole".

    At this point, I decided to move on.
