I'm noticing that some whalers around 1970 came with a small hooded compass, can't find any info on them ?

You are referring to the classic Ritchie Explorer Compass. They came in Red and Grey and today even used ones can fetch $250-300.

I myself have a brand new in the box Ritchie Explorer in Grey from the late 60's. It is one of my most prized parts in my cache.
