no pun for compass
In the wheelhouse there is a big old compass mounted in front of the wheel, with a little window to look into to see the compass heading. It was only while talking to phil yesterday, who came round to finish bleeding the fuel injectors (the engine is now a-ok and roaring away healthily!), that we reallised that the housing comes off, to reveal a beautiful, gimbal mounted compass inside.
Not only that, but the little door in the side opens so that you can put a tea light in there to light the compass at night, withut spoiling your night vision. Good eh?
