    So... My compass is working nicely and looking quite dapper. But dangit the cover blew away! ARRRGGGHHH! Assuming I’ll never find it and a replacement isn’t available can y’all help me figure a way to protect it from UV? I want it to look nice while being easy to put on and take off. Thanks!

    Cover your compass with something like this.

    One day I’ll list all the cool Kermit things I have. Some are generic Muppet Show items but most are Kermit.

    How awesome is that?

    I still have an old micky mouse phone around somewhere and my wife and daughter bought me an old, pre-kungfu grip GI Joe because I use to complain about my mother selling some of my old ones when we moved onto the boat and the rest when we move up North.

    Here's a picture of my father sitting in GI Joe's 6-wheeler 6-wheeler on Sunflower.jpg the other guy was one of the captains who helped run the fishing boats with the Old Man.

    This must be your Australian cousin. He was caught sneaking into an ENTOMOLOGY show. When interviewed as to the reasons for his arrest...

    Compass covers blow away all the time.... most are available on-line as replacements. I know I've bought al least 2 plastimo contest covers as replacements over the years.

    @Phil Herring Maybe it's time for a little payback for being dethroned. :)

    Maybe that comment should be the Marine Sanitation section. ;-)

    I showed this to my wife when she was home for lunch. This is her favorite.

    Some enterprising soul has to have access to a 3d printer. Just sayin.
