compass

Looking for a decent compass for a very decent price.

Also looking for a working vhf and a chart plotter.

Working on literally no budget because I just got the boat done. Anyway gear does not need to be perfect but I need it working and not About to fall apart.

Let me know. Thanks
When I mean low budget I mean I can probably only afford the compass but at least I won't get turned around.

Looks great. Only thing I am wondering is what size it is? Trying to fill the gaping holes in my console. Either which way I am sure I can mount it somewhere else.

That hole looks like it's for a plastimo offshore.

If money is as tight as you say, a compass would be low in my list. Blank off the hole & spend your limited funds on a vhf or plotter.

VHF first maybe, but compass before plotter surely !

I have here a used M411 icom VHF 75, plus postage. It's a DSC set but will function without a GPS input perfectly well as a standard VHF.

Compass

Hi, iv'e got a plastimo offshore compass that would probably fill that hole, its pretty grubby looking as you can see, but i'm sure you could clean it up, it works fine and accurate.
you can have it for 20, + 5, postage, if any good to you.

Gerry.
