Yes, we will each have a GPS on board, but we will also be using a compass for navigation. Redundancy and backup systems for everything critical! The compass is a tried and true navigational tool, used for centuries, and does not require batteries. However, the Epic 18x did not come with any convenient recesses for easy compass mounting, and both of us preferred a permanent mount over a temporary one.
Greg came up with an innovative solution: create a compass ready hatch.
Drill the bits, screw in the compass, swap the hatch, and good to go!
