Required for a charter boat, although I am at a loss to explain why on a boat that is limited to 20 miles in day light and favourable conditions. Recon you would get more information off a good weather forecast before heading out than looking at a barometer, just something else to corrode and fail miserably in the bottom of a wet locker.

Would my watch count? It has a barometer and altimeter combined - pretty accurate as well.

Soooooo, how is the standard procedure of tapping the barometer to determine if the pressure is going up or down going to work on a RIB. ????? DUH.

Why not try one of these?

My watch has been great - barometer is very accurate. They even do a GPS one as well now.

Hi
I use one of these tissot watches, it is similar to the suunto, I also find it very accurate and compass works well.

I bought something from Lidle or similar a while ago - looked a bit like a GPS but had a barometer and comapss built in - waterproof case and nice big digits - easily mount it on the dash.

Something like this

Bit of velcro and job done!!!
