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).
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
