SpeedPuck by Velocitek

SpeedPuck by Velocitek Velocitek SpeedPuck
4.5" Diameter, 1" Thickness

The SpeedPuck combines a high-accuracy GPS speedometer, compass and bar graph wind shift indicator in a compact, durable package. It is designed to be mounted on a dinghy or handheld when hiking on a sportboat. The SpeedPuck improves your sailing by allowing you to quantify the effects of boat trim, sail trim, wind shifts and current. No more second guessing yourself!

The SpeedPuck is designed for long-term reliability in a saltwater marine environment.

In addition to this, the battery compartment is completely sealed off from the rest of the device's electronics, providing a second layer of protection against moisture.

Main Display Modes of the SpeedPuck:
  • Speedometer: Displays speed, updated at 2Hz.

Vion Mini Handbearing Compass by Steiner

Vion Mini Handbearing Compass by Steiner Steiner Vion Mini Handbearing Compass
Affectionately known as the "hockey puck" for its shape, size, rugged, and plucky character, this is the best hand bearing compass we've found. It's small enough to slip into a pocket, light enough to hang by its neck strap, and has its own phosphorescent chemical light source (requires exposure to sunlight) for night use.

A rubber shock resistant caseguard protects both the compass and the user, and a special damping system allows the card to swing smoothly without wild fluctuations, and stop at the bearing point almost immediately. Perfect for shooting the line, figuring course bias, determining laylines, etc. Horizontal and vertical reading, 3-31/16" x 1-1/8" thick. Accurate to one degree, no parallax error. 1 Year warranty.
