The SILVA 70P Compass is a deck-mounted compass designed as an excellent navigational tool for sea kayakers that demand absolute accuracy and a steady card in all conditions. The 70P handles unlimited slope of the keel line and a 30º heeling angle. The curved lubber line enables swift and clear reading at a glance without parallax errors. With a main steering scale on the horizontal part and direct reading on the vertical edge, 70P is ideal for boats with a sitting as well as a standing helmsman. 70P can be mounted at most angles and is suitable for smaller boats due to its compact size (70 mm). Designed to go into the deck recess on sea kayaks. The low-profile design protects it during rescues, and the card (dial to you landlubbers) is big enough to be seen easily from a distance.
For night viewing, attaching a light stick near the compass is the simplest option.
