    Re: Sextants
    From: Donna Ferron

    I'm interested in these questions as well although I have yet to purchase a
    sextant. I wanted to wait for my nautical atlas from the government printing
    office to arrive. I've been told by a friend that I'll be waiting a long
    time. Is this true?
    Thanks, Donna
