May have lost the old Danforth bulkhead mounted compass and lovely bronze ring, during an extended boatyard stay. It may have been a Danforth Saturn. Seems like I amy have seen that name.
Am starting to look at possible new replacement. Any ideas?
Am looking at a Danforth or Richie, bulkhead mount, just online shopping so far, but open to other ideas.
Richie seems to be a great product, although I'd have to refit more extensively, it seems. A WOA member already wrestled with the required true vertical installation on his Richie. A teak wedge.
I think my best deal may be the new Danforth Saturn model which is AOK for vertical or up to 15 degrees forward slope from vertical installation. Maybe that's why my prior owner installed one like it. I am thinking it would probably fit the old installation well, and probably even the hole size.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
I think pricewise, they are similar at around $250, with the Danforth a little less and the Richie a little more.
Thanks in advance for any input.
