So long as your ship's compass is working, you can take bearings using a pelorus. Make your own for next to nothing, low tech, pretty foolproof. www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pelorus

We used a Plastimo iris it was very good but you need another if you go to the S/N hemi.

Good for you. I should stand you a pint some day and we can compare notes on steel boat issues.

I have used the Plastimo Iris 100 for years. The battery lighted model is my favorite . They have a great fixed mount bracket as well. Dave

Yes, as I'm in the market for a new 50-60 HP engine. The cost of rebuild was too stupid to endure.
