Loran and GPS notwithstanding, there will always be a place for the sextant aboard any blue water boat, if for no other reason than the thrill and mystery of finding one's position on earth by gazing at the heavens. Here is the indispensable reference that should accompany the instrument aboard. Cmdr. Bruce Bauer, a professional navigator and master mariner with the U.S. Merchant Marine, has distilled years of hands-on experience into an eminently readable guide to buying, adjusting, using, and repairing sextants. Topics include assembly and disassembly, vital adjustments, avoiding problems, rough weather sightings, oiling and cleaning, immersion baths, emergency silvering and finding and buying used sextants. Black and white illustrations.
