Compass Mount for Laser Sailboat - GPS Based Compass
This new design is 3D Printed on demand for you. The compass mounts to the laser with 3M Dual Lock strips. If it does come loose (highly unlikely) it is further secured by the Outhaul and Cunningham lines. With removable compasses like the Velocitek Speedpuck (sold separately) shown here, we always recommend additionally securing the device to the boat with a separate line. Our mount has been tested and has stood up to rough conditions with no issues. Made of biodegradable PLA plastic (don't worry, doesn't mean it's not strong!) it is environmentally responsible as well.
The platform is 5" high by 3.5" wide. The compass shown is the Velocitek Speedpuck (sold separately) but will accommodate any compass that fits the platform. It is designed for GPS based compasses like the Velocitek Speedpuck. It will not do well with electronic compasses like the Raymarine Tacktic or the Velocitek Prism, as they should be mounted more vertically. To attach the compass we recommend drilling pilot holes for your compass platform per the instructions included with it and using stainless steel screws and ny-lock nuts to secure it to the platform.
