You can paint the yellow base with Krylon Fusion paint (small $$) or get a stainless replacement from Edson (big$$).PeteOn Mon, Jun 17, 2013 at 9:11 PM, Kevin <Khartz86@...> wrote:
I hope everyone had a good weekend.
We did, even though when I removed the compass cover I discovered all the fluid had drained out.
Since I have been wanting to switch out the yellowed plastic mount with stainless I guess this is the time I will replace it all.
What size compass is appropriate to fit in replacement of the old ritchie?
Suggestions on style as well would be helpful, too. I have seen some with a full stainless cover and sliding door and some that are of the more open type like the old ritchie
Are there differences in brands of compasses?
Any other things to fix while I have it apart?
Any tips or suggestions for those of you who have been down this road would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
