Hi all;

I'm looking for a compass for my Renegade. At least I think that is what was there? There is a small porthole in the cockpit companionway step that has a bracket underneath with a wire. It is about 3" in dia. My original equipment list for the renegade shows that it came with a 3" Flush Mount Corsair Compass. Well, mine is missing, and I'm trying to locate a replacement. I'm thinking those Corsair Compasses must have been sold to at least a few different manufacturer's around that time, so they probably ended up in more than just the Renegade. Just having a tough time tracking them down. If anyone has any ideas on who I might give a shout to, or of any other yachts those compasses may have been installed in, I would truly appreciate any tips anyone might have.
Thanks all! :)

Found this on the net:

Looks like you can replace it with a Ritchie Helmsman HF-742 or HF-743.

Hi Dolce-Vita!

Thanks for the reference. I did check those out but it looks like the stick up quite a bit. Wouldn't work for my spot. At least I think this is where a compass went? I don't know what else might have been there? Ideas anyone?
