Mark 3 Standard Plastic Davis Sextant

A sextant is an excellent tool to have on board any size craft as a backup in case there is a failure of the navigational systems. Used to measure the angular distance between two visible objects, the most common sextant navigation points are an astronomical object and the horizon. Sextants have many uses, ranging from measuring the distance of a landmark to determining Greenwich Mean Time.

Sometimes referred to as a “lifeboat” sextant, the Mark 3 is an inexpensive training sextant. Yet this model has taken sailors around the world, too! It is full-sized and has sunshades, but no optical magnification to help you find dim celestial bodies. Comes with instruction booklet.

Size: 9" x 9" x 3"
