    Re: Whats in Your Sextant Box?

    Look at the way that sextant manufacturer's put extra kit into the case.  Each item has a stow location and a method to secure it in that location.  Unless the additional items you wish to add are securely stowed within the box, they become a hazard to your optics and mirrors.  Imagine the thrill of a cracked lens or scratched mirror.

    What you mentioned looks like a very good "drag-up kit, though you might consider adding he following items.

    Mechanical pencil (Pentil perhaps) and some leads.
    Paper and an eraser.

    None of the above would take up much space.
