    Re: ebbco sextant

    Hello,
     
    In March last year, while looking for an Ebbco (and having failed to get any response from Ebbco's old East Berks address),  I emailed Navastro (France), who sell the Plastimo sextant, to ask about spares for a used Ebbco, which I was considering purchasing on ebay. In the event, I bought a new one here in the UK, so didn't need any spares. But Monsieur Posth of Navastro told me that his company stocked spares which would fit the standard Ebbco model.
     
    I've no idea whether Navastro still stock Ebbco spares, but I hope this information is of use to you.
