Hi David,

I don't have any brand name rec. for compasses, though I had a Plastimo
compass on my alberg 22 for eight years that was very dependable, and never
required any maintanance.

My 'suggestion' is that you look into a tactical racing style compass, even if
you just cruise. The alternating green and red patterns along the compass card
make it real easy to hold a course, without having to actually look at
numbers. A simple glance at the card shows you if the lubber line has moved in
relation to the colored bands.

As far as drilling holes in a 31 year old boat, it's only the first one that
hurts.;) And if you REALLY don't want to drill new holes, you can make a
wooden or aluminum mounting plate that  matches the old holes on the boat, and
then drill the 'new' holes for mounting the new fitting into the plate.

Good Luck,
