Plastimo Marine Equipment Contest 101 Compass with Red Card Sailboats as from 9 metres (30 ft). When Plastimo invented the double reading compass, it was a major innovation which allowed the yachtsman to follow his course from the cockpit and the cabin. The Contest 101 goes a step further : its exclusive mounting possibilities on any bulkhead - whatever the thickness - and its aesthetics allow the Contest 101 to adapt perfectly to today's yachts, both in terms of engineering technique and glamorous design. • Ideal for 26-40’ (8-12m) sailboats • Dual-reading compass lets you view your boat’s heading from both the cockpit and the cabin • Crisp red, yellow, black or white card and 5° graduations are easy to read, up to 15’ (4.6m) away • Cone-shaped card has both vertical and horizontal graduations for front and top readings • A 45° card clearance when heeling; 35° when pitching • 2 lubberlines at 45° each side of the main lubberline eliminate parallax error when reading from the side • Built-in clinometer is graduated every 5° • 12V DC lighting built into the upper bezel distributes light precisely on the card; 24V lighting available • Mounts in any bulkhead to 1.6" (40mm) thick (0-10°) or inclined (10-25°) from vertical • Watertight, anti-theft installation uses four threaded, sunken plastic rods and bolts, and a back flange for a neat cabin look • Viton® diaphragm accommodates liquid expansion and prevents bubble formation • All parts are treated for UV-resistance • Scratch-resistant dome • Same footprint and drilling pattern as the Contest 100 for easy upgrades • Includes snap-on protective cover • Optional bezels in three colors are interchangeable • Front access to the light and optional compensation cell
