California has determined owning this sextant might kill you. :grinning: Is there anything that WON’T make you sick, according to California? :laughing:

This looks like a very cheap replica. Buyer beware.

Surprised it is actually a legit product in their store. I am happy to shop at Harbor Freight but I also know my expectations. Pretty funny read on the reviews, some folks truly thought they would get a useable product for $30 and not a decorative piece.

That it measures 2" x 4" is kind of a give away…

Ya think? :wink:

Taken from the Manual: Functional sextant for display only; do not use for navigation.

You get what you pay for!

The cheapest and most useable one I have found is $100 and that got me a near mint condition Davis Instruments vintage model, less than that and it’s just a decoration most likely.

I think I will stick with LORAN. It’s on sale on EBAY. :laughing:
