    Wanted: Small Craft Precision Sextant from Francis Barker
    From: G Matthiasen
    Date: 2007 Jan 20, 01:09 -0800

    I know of the Small Craft Precision Sextant (a boxsextant) produced by
    the british firm Francis Barker & Son at the end of the 1980's. I've
    seen the sextant in two types: a dark-grey og a beige version. Normally
    the sextants are in a small leather case. Today the firm Francis Barker
    has been taken over by Pyser-SGI Limited, and they don't produce the
    sextant anymore (I've been in contact with the firm).
    
    I'm interested in buying a couple of these specific instruments from
    Francis Barker and from the 1980's, but they seem quite difficult to
    find on the net. Could anyone help me with a name/adress of a dealer?
    
    You can see a photo of this specific sextant on:
