Steering compass 2

When mounting a steering compass in a boat, be aware of the following recommendations:
1.the compass must be mounted with the lubber line coinciding with the boat’s fore-and-aft line
2.the compass must be mounted so as to be seen easily by the helmsman
To avoid deviation problems, do not mount the compass close to large metal objects. Mount the compass at least 2 meters (6 feet) away from the engine.
