Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation Really liked that it is self adhesive as I hate drilling holes in my boat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice compass Not exactly what I was hoping for, but nice for what it is, and I made it work for me.. Not ideal for a larger boat, but perfect for your run about, or fishing boat..

Asked by: jesse
It can be but is not recommended due to the surfaces not always being level for installation.

What size does the whole in the dash have to be?

Asked by: Kathy
The Ritchie Explorer S-53 Surface-Mount Compass is not recessed into the dash, as it is mounted to the dash.

How does this mount on the dash. Glue,screws..etc is their a mounting bracket included? Would this work in a car and what are the dimensions? Thank you Larry

Asked by: Anonymous
This is a marine compass so it would mount with a screw through the dash of your boat. I highly doubt that you would want to mount this in your car with a screw through the dash. We do not make recommendations on how to use our products in any way that is different than their intended use, for legal purposes. The outside dimensions for this compass are: 2-7/8"H x 3-5/8"W
