Cal 23 Cabin Door angle off Horizon

Where/how do I post a question of mine? Here?

I have a Cal 23 and need to know the angle of the Cabin Door off Horizontal so I can make wedge to mount a Compass Perpendicular. They say it has to be mounted 90 degrees from the horizon.

Any know the angle, or where to find the angle it would say its 5-30 degrees at the most, thanks

Aloha Craig,
I'm not quite understanding your question. Where, precisely are you going to mount your compass? Is it going on a more or less vertical athwartship bulkhead at the forward end of your cockpit (outside of your aft cabin bulkhead)?
Is your boat in the water?
Kind Regards,
JohnL

I was going to mount it next to the cabin door on the outside, it has a cover, its like a 5 3/4 inch Bulkhead mount, and it specifically states, "A FAIRING BLOCK MUST BE USED TO MOUNT VERTICALLY", MUST BE 90 DEGREES TO HORIZON.

MY CABIN IS SLIGHTLY SLANTED, SO I PRESUME I HAVE TO MAKE A WEDGE SHAPED BLOCK TO MOUNT IT ON THE WALL TO THE COCKPIT.

I COULD GET A GOOD PROTRACTOR AND GO UP AND TRY TO ESTIMATE THE SLANT. MY ESTIMATE WITHOUT GOING 100 MILES TO THE BOAT IS 5-15 DEGREES, BUT MAYBE SOME KNOWS, OR THERE ARE SOME DRAWINGS SOMEPLACE, MAYBE ON THE NET, THAT ACTUALLY TELLS.

AGAIN ITS A CAL 23.


THANKS AGAIN
