    Used Sextant Wanted
    From: Jim Bach
    Date: 1998 Jan 11, 9:45 PM

    Looking for a used, not abused, metal sextant in the box it came in - with
    000's across the board.
    Not much money - dealing with the $.50Canadian Dollar - but you can be sure
    that it will be cared for and used for the purpose it was intended.
    
    Would like feed back on the Davis Mk 25 or equivalent - other than melting
    in the hot sun.  Is there any significant difference taking a sight on the
    deck of a pitching 35 foot sailboat with a plastic sextant over a shiny
    metal one.  I realize that on a stable surface the tolerances would be great
    but I would appreciate hearing from someone who has used both on small boats
    and the differences it made.
    
    thanks, Jim.
