          The standard for sea kayaking

              Comments about Brunton 70P Kayak Compass:

              B&H had a great price on this compass, and it is the choice of many if not most experienced sea kayakers who have boats with the standard hemispherical cut-out in the fore deck. I therefore chose it for my first sea kayak. I have many compasses that I've used over the decades for land navigation, but this is my first marine compass. On the first group paddle I went on after installing it, all of the five boats in the group had this compass, and all the compasses agreed with each other precisely. The only reason I don't give it five stars is because the self-tapping mounting screws it comes with should be thrown away and replaced by stainless steel machine screws, washers, and lock nuts.

              Easy enough installation

              Comments about Brunton 70P Kayak Compass:

              I mounted it on a Cetus. There are videos on YouTube about how to use a string to make sure you are squaring it up with your kayak correctly. I used the screws supplied after I made sure that moving them around near the compass did not move the needle. It took some strength to drive the screws down the holes I drilled, so I think it is plenty secure. I used silicone aquarium caulk to cover the sharp screws inside the bulkhead.

                  My wife and I have these 70Ps mounted in our NDK kayaks and have had no problems with them. They are a perfect fit, easy to install, and provide reliable service. I can't think of anything that we have been disappointed with.

                    Many production kayaks have a deck recess for the 70P compass, an essential for navigation and safety even when paddling familiar waters. Nice to see one available at such an attractive price. Thanks B&H!

                        I use this compass on a P&H Scorpio Kayak. Today was the maiden voyage and it performed flawlessly. I used stainless bolts and lock-nuts instead of the small included screws. The included screws were just too small for me to trust while driving down a bumpy road with the boat on my roof. Beware though, drill for the sheet metal screws first and check position of the holes on the inside, because if the deck is thick, the nuts may not fit on the inside so you may be forced to use the screws. I had to put the nuts on the outside and fortunately the bolt heads fit inside. (Big scare at first when they didn't fit.) But it still looks great. Installation was easy after getting up the nerve to drill the holes. So far so good. No leaks and it seemed to be true.

                            I use the Brunton P70 on my EPIC 18X sport Expedition kayak. They have a new front hatch cover that allows mounting the P70 and fits most, if not all, of their Sea Kayaks You don't need to go on expeditions to need the P70. ON a simple paddle when a fog bank roles in or you get caught out in a heavy rain or snow squall the landmarks that were easy navigation points just disappear and the compass is there to keep you on a straight course. It works well even in choppy conditions because of its damped design. At night it is not illuminated although the instructions indicate some lighting accessory is available from the manufacturer. I just use a light stick and a piece of duck tape to keep it lighting the compass and not shining into my eyes; one less set of batteries or contacts to corrode. On the Composite EPIC hatch the stainless screws provide were not usable. I replaced them with brass (non-magnetic) machine screws, washers, nuts, and silicon seal to make it all water tight.

                                      I love this compass. It was a bit tricky to install on my kayak because instruction is very minimal, no schemas or pictures. I have installed it on my P&H Scorpio kayak and it looks and works great. My only complain is about the size of digits on the dial ( I can't see unless I'm wearing glasses. )

                                      This is my second compass. I mounted one on another kayak. This one was relatively easy to mount but the mounting screws stripped and were rather difficult to seat properly. Apart from the mounting difficulties, the compass performs perfectly and is easy to use.
