Not good for use in boats. – Marine Plastic Compass with Stand Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap and compact.
Cons:
I bought it for marine usage (re. the product title). At once the compass is turned to one side or another, the compass rose will touch the "glass" (i.e. plastic), and therefore not adjust to correct direction. In my boat, and in my area, the water is not flat. I have waves, like most others will meet while in boat.
Other:
Not so very solid impression, mostly "light" plastic. Though, this was as expected and is OK.
Bottomline:
Not good for use in boats, the title "Marine Plastic Compass" is misleading (IMO).
