Question

AAC Member, Terje asks [edited for brevity]:

We are planning to go full time voyaging in 2016 and although we have two GPSs aboard, by wife, who is the navigator, would like a sextant and so I’m planning to give her one for Christmas. Do you have a recommendation for the sextant I should buy? How about this one?
