For open lifeboat installations we have a selection of compasses specifically designed for this application. The CHB compass comprises of a 100mm flat card compass contained within an all weather ABS cover - this compass can be permanently mounted on any horizontal surface. There is a battery operated light mounted on the binnacle for night operation.
If there is not sufficient space to mount a compass or a permanently mounted compass is not desirable, we have several boxed compasses that have MED approval. The C4 range comprises of two boxed compasses, one with an 85mm card and the other with a 100mm card - the box sizes are 155 x 135 x 155mm and 190 x 190 x 130mm respectively. These compasses can be stowed in a secure location until required.
The bracket mount CHH compass with 100mm flat card is available for those looking to use a custom binnacle or replace an existing compass - this model is supplied on a gimballed bracket and comes with full MED approved, 12v/24v lighting is optional.
