Dials in magnetic compasses should be balanced to compensate for dip caused by the earth’s magnetic field. All Ritchie Compasses are standard balanced for Zone 1 (essentially all of the northern hemisphere)
All Magnetic Compasses are vulnerable to magnetic interference which will produce errors called deviation. It is the Owner/Operator and/or Helmsman’s responsibility to make sure the compass is properly installed and compensated. Compensation is the act of correcting for deviation. Magnets (speakers microphones etc.) ferrous metals (steel iron etc.) and current carrying devices are common causes of deviation. It is important to understand that magnetic compasses point toward Magnetic North. There is a difference between Magnetic North and True North and that difference is called variation. Variation differs depending on your geographical location and can be determined by referring to a local chart.
The Venture SR 2 is designed primarily for sailboats 16 ft. (4.88m) to 36 ft (10.68m) in length.
