    Re: What is a good sextant to buy?

    Message to Michael Bradley (sorry, I do not have a personal email address.)
    Thanks again for the heads up on the Kelvin Hughes.
    I actually won the auction, much to my surprise. Good condition except for the 
    horizon mirror which needs re-silvering. ( hoping for advice from Bill 
    Morris).I got an appropriate refund from the vendor.
    This has been well used and not the most perfect work of art compared to top 
    Japanese and German makes, but I am now the proud owner of a classic 1961  
    British Sextant to be friends with my 1960s Royal Enfield motorcycle!. My 
    wife thinks both are worthless boy's toys, which they are! But hey, they help 
    keep me alive!
    I will test it against the Astra B when I have sorted the horizon mirror.
    Thanks again
    Best wishes
    Francis

    Thanks Michael,
    I'll have a go, and hope one of my children see it as my Christmas present! No 
    idea what the eventual auction price will be but here's hoping!
    Thanks again, I'll let you know.
    Francis
