    GPS would give some more immediate confidence and convenience BUT for long
    term usage given my fear of technology breakdown I would select a sextant
    and books

    While we're on the subject of how to best spend the $1000, I noted with
    interest that everyone made provision for at least one GPS receiver - I
    certainly agree. Now how about the following, slightly modified situation?
    Which would you choose, given only the following two choices for your
    navigational aspects, with no other options allowed:
    Either,
    1)      One GPS receiver
    
            OR
    
    2)      Sextant, tables and timepiece etc.
    
    Assume that this is for an ocean crossing and perhaps for extended cruising
    afterwards.
    
    Cheers
    Russell
