    Re: Use of stopwatch taking sights, any other users?

    Mark,

    I use an old cell phone.  My old phone has a stopwatch with 20 lap timers.  I start the watch on the hour using WWV from inside my house.  Then when I do my sight I hit Lap, write down the sextant reading and take another sight.  Four sights on three stars , quick and easy.  Then I go inside, record the times next to the sight numbers and then do my math.

    I think this would work on a boat if you put the phone in a zip lock bag.

    John H.
