USING A HAND BEARING COMPASS: The seller has used a similar Sestrel while at sea for an
extended period. In this day of electronic navigation, they are still handy for the following purposes which are as valid now
as they were 45 years ago. For those people who grew up with GPS, that system can not provide the information
a hand bearing compass can unless coupled to a Radar. And then you need to know Radar plotting to solve Closest
Point of Approach situations. Here's how to use this compass:
- Take bearings of vessels in crossing
situations to determine risk of collision.
- Take bearings of sea buoys,
land marks or other objects to determine distance off at time of passing
- In congested waters, take
bearings of a number of different vessels to determine if their relative position is constant or changing.
- Sailors learn to take back
bearings to determine your leeway
Rarely do you find a
piece of old gear in such great condition. A superior addition to any collection or use it at sea.
