    I need a new, larger deck compass. Mine is small and cheap. Recommendations? Only the removeable sort, please?

    What one are you currently using? Helpful to know so people can recommend larger.

    I've had good success with Seattle Sports SeaRover compass (about $34 on Amazon). I used to put it closer to the bow, but embarrassed myself by pushing a duffle with metal camping supplies under it. These days I'm more careful or mount it closer to the cockpit so "gear" isn't under it.

    I'm curious as to why you're not interested in a deck mounted compass. Your Pilgrim has the recess for one.
