Have a handheld if you need redundacy a KVH you can still read when your traditional compass is spinning like a top because of rough water.

Thanks for the replies kid's.

I narrowed it down to a Ritchie RU-90 and the SS 1000.

It looks like the SS 1000 is more designed for bouncing around, so thats the way I am gonna go...

I have that compass and have had no problems except the difference in colors (faded bezel) the white mounting bezel has turned to a dirty white beige color. I have to do something with it (drives me crazy). I may paint it to match my gauge bezels or send it to Ritchie for repair.
Just thought you may want to know this could happen
You can see the different colors in this picture.

Thanks for the tip. While I was shopping, I noticed they make covers for the model you have. Perhaps once you get it changed, it will keep it from happening again...
