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).

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
