A high stability, bulkhead-mounted compass designed for sailboats and yachtsmen that demand absolute accuracy, a steady card in all conditions and heeling angles. The compass permits up to 45° heeling and unlimited tilting fore and aft. 102B/H has a 100 mm capsule, gimballed cradle and direct reading scale on the vertical edge. Especially suitable for sailing boats, motor sailing vessels and larger motor yachts.
With the front heeling scale you can easily keep track of the heeling angle. The compass also features built-in red illumination that makes night navigation easier. The gimballed lubber lines stay vertical even if the boat is heeling (max 45°). The two extra lubber lines at 45° offset permit reading from the rail or an off steering position mounting. The compass is made from all UV resistant materials and the capsule filled with UV resistant liquid. The non-transparent capsule eliminates burn effect.
The optional compensator is easy to fit in a holder under the detachable front. The front also covers the mounting screws. Template matches Contest 101 and 100. White protection cover included.
