    The dying art of celestial navigation. Using a sextant to "shoot the sun." Another form of navigation a very old salty sea dog taught me 30+ years ago. Wish I had never lost my brass one overboard near Nosy Be Island.
    One can get plastic ones. The original brass ones are hens teeth.
    Oh and one needs a good chronometer.
    Its all gps now.
    Those compas' bring back some memories.
