Many power and sailboats have limited dash or deck space for a compass. The Explorer Flush-Mount F-50 is the ideal solution. Requiring only a 3.75" round hole, it fits into the tightest spaces. And because it's made by Ritchie Navigation, its reliability and durability are unparalleled.
Made in the USA, the Explorer Flush-Mount F-50 compass features a black or white 2-3/4" dial with large heading letters, 30° incremental numbers and 5° marks. The dome has a bright yellow lubber line on the black version and red on the white.
Small boats tend to bounce when they encounter chop, but not the Explorer Flush-Mount F-50. Powerful DirectForce™ Magnets combined with a hardened steel pivot movement with a sapphire jewel bearing deliver fast and smooth heading lock-on. Because consoles and decks tend to be cluttered with metallic fittings, built-in compensators adjust for deviation.
The rugged composite body of the Ritchie Explorer F-50 is built to last, even when subjected to continual environmental extremes. When light is low, it has integrated green lighting; when it's bright out, the movable sun shield provides optimal viewing. Model F-50-SRCWT has a 12V blue LED with a Deutsch connector.
Available in black (versions F-50 and F-50-SRCWT) or white (F-50W) the Ritchie Navigation Explorer F-50 mounts into a 3.75" hole and requires only 2.2" of depth and three screws. It's 100% repairable, comes with a five-year warranty and costs $77.45.
