Hi

Another option is the Silva 70. see attached picture – mounted on a couple of wooden blocks with ‘v’s sanded to fit the mast and held on by a bungee that pulls over clips. Mounting idea stolen from Matt, I think.

Some considerations are keeping it away from genoa sheets, which is why I moved it off the deck. Another is if you need a lit compass – I steer by red headlight at night, but a lit compass might be a better idea.

By the way, it is guaranteed to work in he Bristol Channel – photo taken off Portishead
