I've got a 1953 steel
. Since it has only been used by the previous Dutch owners on Dutch inland waters, it does not have a compass
. The boat
I thought and found a Sestrel Moore compass
. However, there is no good spot to install it.
That's why I'm thinking of buying
an over the counter bulkhead mounted Plastimo
Contest compass. Compensation magnets are available and the plan is to buy them to cancel out the deviation caused by the boat.
Does anyone know or have experience with compensated bulkhead compasses on steel
boats? Does it work
? Will I get treasonably reliable readings from it?
Thanks for sharing the knowledge!
