Well the wind indication was still incorrect. So we pulled them off the mast again, and sent both to Raymarine after checking the wiring. Both were bad, after a flat fee; which they included both, thanks Raymarine; they are working. I hope! So I hoisted Tammy up the mast to replace the wind vane. She had fun and of course took selfies from the top.

Tammy & I attended the education class at Bay Yacht Club, taught by Rick Bell, on using a sextant. We have a Davis plastic model, 1925 Plath brass version, and each iPad/iPhones have Astranav on them. We've calibrated all the sextants. We took readings 3 days in row and believe we are finding our latitude within a few degrees, so we shouldn't get lost too bad, using this and our new compass. But of course I'm using the GPS just in case.
