Re: Hand Bearing Compass Advice
I've found that a hand-bearing compass is unnecessary. It's all relative and if you know your heading, major bearings off your boat are all that's needed. And, given everything that's been discussed so far, that's the best you can hope for anyway. So why spend $200 for something your eyes can do for you just as well?
