OK, it is a little bit ugly but surely this must be the most versatile compass ever made.
Just look at these features!
- It is both a handbearing compass and a steering compass
- It is ideal for small yachts, kayaks, dinghies and, due to its excellent vibration dampening, it is perfect of high speed power craft.
- It can be installed in any position (away from ferrous metals). Vertical, horizontal, laying flat and even upside down - which brings me to its next feature!
- Mount it upside down above your berth and you can keep an eye on your course and shout at the crew without getting up!
- If you are single handed you can glance up and check your course every time that egg timer goes ping.
- Its resistance to vibration is tested by French testing lab LNE (no.30 559 010) making this a perfect choice for bumpy high speed craft.
- The rubber casing protects the compass against shocks
- The bracket is low profile with rounded edges so it won't catch
- Spare brackets can be purchased so it can be mounted in various locations
- The card can be read horizontally or directly
- If things don't go the way you planned, this compass floats!
- It floats because it only weighs 295 g
- It is world balanced to suit Northern and Southern hemisphere
- I could go on but its lunchtime and I'm hungry.
So as a main steering compass, a hand bearing compass or just a back up this little Iris 100 would take a bit of beating.
