Re: PSC With Tillers, where's your compass?

Our boat has the compass mounted in the port bulkhead. There are two Simrad IS-15 displays on the starboard side and two more where the engine instruments normally go below the companionway. The compass is by itself because the IS-15 instruments have a 0.5m compass safe distance. There is some wiring in the space behind the naugahyde covered panel above the fridge/freezer that I have worried a little about. But, there is much more wiring on the starboard side.

The PSC 34 that is adjacent to ours in our marina has a compass on each side.
