    Re: Sextant manufacturers
    From: Alexandre Eremenko

    Greg,
    This is the problem already mentioned:
    The difference between a manufacturer and a dealer.
    
    I only posted this list as a "seed" from which a more
    complete list can grow.
    
    Anyway, I will appreciate if someone complements
    my preliminary list (or supplies details about any
    of those already in the list and about their sextants).
    
    Especially I would be interested to see a list
    of Tamaya clones, and American manufacturers.
    
    Alex
