It only takes one foggy, disorienting day on the water to make a boat owner understand the value of a compass. The SuperSport Venture SS-PR2 from Ritchie Navigation is the ideal new or replacement magnetic compass for boats from 16′ to 35′ in length. It comes with the unique Compensation Module that allows for dash or bulkhead installation locations that are near equipment that might otherwise affect deviation.
The SuperSport Venture has a blue 3-3/4″ CombiDial™ card with bold, easy-to-read heading numbers in 30° increments on the side and cardinal directives on top. It’s pre-wired with blue 12-24V LED lighting for use in reduced light. The polished dome has orange 45° lubber lines for direction reference. The compass comes with a protective slip-on cover.
With Ritchie’s Powerdamp™ system, the SuperSport Venture SS-PR2 performs in the worst of conditions. Combined with a hardened steel pivot and triple cup sapphire jewel movement, dial spinning and jumping are virtually eliminated. Card movement is sure and accurate.
The compass allows for vertical to a 40° mounting angle. The durable 6″ H x 6-3/8″ W polymer base requires a 4-5/8″ hole and four 15/64″ bolt holes. A bulkhead adapter plate is available for refit use. The SuperSport Venture SS-PR2 from Ritchie Navigation costs approximately Cdn $278 and comes with a five-year warranty.
