Finding the Kon Tiki position with the sextant.

The Kon Tiki    On April 28, 1947, a handmade raft constructed of balsa trunks, hemp rope and bamboo, departed from Callao, Peru and headed west into the Pacific via the Humboldt current. The raft was destined for  the Polynesian Islands in hopes to show that a vessel made of similar materials and technologies could have allowed the people at that time to do so. It was a journey that will forever be noted in the history books.
