The Ebbco sextant was British (link)
By:Robert Gainer
Date: 11/4/2007, 7:58 pm

The Ebbco sextant was British and made by East Banks Boat Company but it is now made by the French marine hardware company Plastimo. A good usable instrument that in some ways is better then the low end Davis. All the best, Robert Gainer
