I have a bulk-head mounted "Plastimo Contest".
A mate just dropped off another compass
- has "Maximum Polyaxial" printed on the card.
I was thinking of mounting it in the cabin
- somewhere I could see it from my bunk.
Yet it reads 10 degrees different from the bulkhead mounted "Plastimo Contest".
I'm tied up to a jetty at present and cannot move for some weeks.
The point of having a 2nd compass
readable from my bed
would be so that when single-handing - I could keep an eye on my heading when snoozing.
Guess with the 'difference' being constant that is still possible - - I will know my boats heading huh?
