Re: Compass Location for a Catalina 25
I'm thinking that a companionway drop board might be the best solution. Certainly the best for now, since it should be pretty quick to fabricate.
The specs for the compass say vertical to 5deg; the bulkhead might be more than that; using a drop board would allow me to tweak the angle.
I'm thinking the new board should be an exact fit for the existing lower board in case I want to close up the companionway and still sail.
The pics posted by Alex show GPS units very close to the compass; isn't that a no-no?
