    Default super screaming deal for a genuine C. Plath sextant on eBay right now!

    $295 but you only have till tomorrow morning. I'd buy it but I've already gots one and I've just put in a bid for a WWII vintage US Maritime Commission Hamilton Mk.21 Chronometer with both cases! Here's the link to the sextant if you want to check it out.




    If you get it, just remember it was your old uncle c.captain who told you about it!

    It ended up going for $538 which was good but not fantastic. When I put it on here there were no bidders yet so they obviously came in later to get it. It was probably worth between $700 and $800 in the end

    I paid $425.00 for my 1978 Cassens & Plath in a Wood Box. A perfect beauty ...

    Do you find that people still bring their own sextants back and forth on hitches? I know this was common when sextants were more frequently used and it was treated like any other piece of luggage but how common is the same thing now?
    "And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by..."
    As I was a walkin' down London Road I come to Paddy West's house. He gave me a feed of "American hash" and he called it "Liverpool Scouse". He said, "There's a ship who's wantin' hands, and on 'er ye'll quickly sign! The mate is a bastard, the bos'un's worse but she will suit ye' fine!
