RITCHIE NAVIGATION
SuperSport Flush-Mount Powerboat Compasses

High-performance compasses with PowerDamp Plus are engineered to prevent spinning caused by high-speed pounding and vibration. A lightweight baffle restricts sideways motion of the flat blue card, allowing it to move freely for precise and rapid alignment. Extra-large steel pivots and jewels give accurate readings even under pounding offshore conditions. Features include internal gimbal, built-in compensator magnets, 12V DC night lighting and movable sun shields (except 5000).

  • Card Type: Flat
  • Mounting Style: Flush
  • Case Material: Reinforced polymer
  • Lubberlines: 45°
  • Clinometer: No
  • Lighting: 12V
  • Cover/Shield: Yes, except SS-5000
  • Warranty: Five years

Comments about SuperSport Flush-Mount Powerboat Compasses:

My 20' Bayliner Trophy is 20 years old, and about four years ago I replaced the original steering compass with a new one because the original compass had become too foggy to read well. The Richie SS-1002 compass I installed less than 4 years ago has lost most of it's fluid. Living on Guam, there is no service place where the fluid can be replenished, and I am forced to replace the compass all too soon.
