That is an interesting one. Good make I believe.I had an early version of this:
Suunto KB-20 Handbearing Compass | Force 4 Chandlery
Which was excellent. I stupidly sold it for something newer which was worse. So it goes.
Reminds me of the 'Aircraft Compass' my father had on our boat ... same idea ...
I have a special "destination finding" compass - a pivoted arrow at the top of my mast which invariably points where I want to go.My favourite compass is the one that, when I’m a few miles East of a favourite Caribbean island, indicates that I’m heading straight for it.
I've got one of those !! Try on the river .... bloody arrow changes to match the line of the river as well !! So its tacking to go up[ river ... tacking to return !!I have a special "destination finding" compass - a pivoted arrow at the top of my mast which invariably points where I want to go.
