Whether onboard the largest tanker or the smallest yacht we take the same care and pay the same attention to detail.  A diligent, methodical approach is necessary to ensure the utmost accuracy when repairing, aligning and calibrating these instruments.

We take pride in helping commercial vessels to get on with their business promptly and we are proud to serve the fishing industry.  We also understand the special pride that yachtsmen take in their boats.

Our Specialty

The magnetic compass is the heart of our business.  We repair and recondition compasses of all makes and models both foreign and domestic.  We stock parts for virtually every US and European manufacturer.  Quality rebuilt compasses are always available.  New instruments can be supplied on special order.  For commercial vessels, Post-repair certification to SOLAS standards is available.  We also restore antique instruments.

We provide compass adjusting service.  Adjusting, or compensation, is performed underway to allow the compass to register as close as possible to the actual magnetic course despite the magnetic field
