Re: What if a lightning strike destroys instrumentation?

No.

And you are correct. The US Navy still carries sextants.

When was that photo?

I can say its old... they havenít wore those uniforms in a long time.

Frustrating...

Itís frustrating to me that most people use the threads that someone else started to just tell their story and not help answer the question that the OP asked.

Re: What if a lightning strike destroys instrumentation?

always have paper charts, but you also need to make sure those paper charts are up to date...GPS is king... if GPS dies, then thereís a bigger problem that a sextant canít solve.

Re: New batteries, voltage drop

Disconnect everything from the batteries. Connect the charger to the batteries and charge them. Test the voltage. And connect/flip breaker/insert fuse for one thing at a time.

Anything not plugged in to the boat will most likely be fine. Kind of like living in Florida and if lightning hits your house.

Re: Windlass replacement

You are correct in the correct application, but, what I meant is donít depend on adhesive for backing.
