Re: Bad compass?

What do you mean, "North everywhere"? If you turn the compass the card should stay stationary. It will always point to magnetic north. The casing and the boat move but the card doesn't (or shouldn't).

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
