I know.. do it by feel... whatever.. Still newer than I thought I was out there on the race course... :D and I know more information would help me...



any of the apps I have on my phone wouldn't be Class legal due to the use of GPS....



Short of dropping 500 bucks on the TackTick micro, what sort of Compass do ya'll that use them like to use?

Works like a dream. About $50 from West Marine!!! Base made from roller deck and is mounted permanently. The compass is mounted on deck as needed !!! Is visible from all locations on trampoline, even while trapped out !!! Had since moved it to the port side of the front crossbar due to a spinnaker installation.

Other views. You can still see the characters from these positions !!! The second pic is an older pic taken before many of the added upgrades.
