Boater U’s “Celestial as a back up to GPS” course provides a means of learning and executing a position fix at sea when a vessel has lost its GPS navigation. Using the inexpensive plastic Davis Mark III sextant and David Burch’s text on it’s use, mariners will have a solution that is compact and inexpensive, using tables and procedures that are easy to learn and use.
