Re: Compass Location for a Catalina 25

My hunter 25 had the compass mounted on the companion way board. Similar to
the pic above, sunris6.jpg. I've pretty much decided to mount the compass in my new boat, Nor'sea 27, the same way. I'd eat Vegemite before i would drill a hole in my boat.

Yea you have to step over the board on the way down below but you have the entire cockpit bulkhead as a back rest. Besides really, just how often do you need the compass ? So the compass & board would be stowed down below on most day sails.
