White Instruments, Compass Connection
Well this is a post about old technology, I had an old Danforth Gunthrope compass and I let my wife use it for a demonstration and well it ended up broken. Now this was 30 years old and came off a Cal 40 sailboat, it was mostly catching dust and mine was powdered coated black. I had just cleaned it off and was thinking that it would look great in a coffee table, since the light illuminated red. So trying to find someone that could fix it was a trying ordeal, well my wife found Ridge White of Robert E. White Instruments since 1961 and he is fixing the compass. The problem was that he was not sure he could find 6" glass, they are made of acrylic today, Robert came through and found a 6" glass ball. So if you are looking for any sort of sailing instrument, this is my full endorsement to buy trust Robert White.
