    Re: Sun sights at the Gulf of Mexico

    My sun sights using a tray of water for an artificial horizon in my garden seem to be too low by about 3 minutes. I have corrected my sextant for index error. I's there anything else I should look out for? Could it just be poor technique? Could I have errors of this size in my arc? If I can't do it in ideal conditions in my garden I will be worse at sea!
