Purpose Of This Compass
Boat has a Contest compass (bulkhead type). The compass is confusing because it has these colored bands with numbers from 0 to 5 and then repeats. What is the purpose of these numbers and color bands? If you look into the compass on the far side of the rotating horozontal dial you will see the normall 0-360 reading- but this is very difficult to read. Why is the compass set up like this?
