I am doing some spring cleaning and have a couple items I want to sell and figured I would sell here instead of eBay.

First up are a set of Mahogany Riser blocks for the Standard Montauk console used from 1984/1985 - 1990 that were mounted with aluminum "L" flanges to the floor. I was going to put them on my 22 Outrage however, I would have had to alter my mooring cover if I did. Having since sold the boat I doubt I will be installing these any time soon. There are solid Mahogany and I put a light coat of teak oil on them when I put them away. They could be oiled or varnished depending on what you wish. They measure out to 1 5/8"W x 2.5"H x 26"L. You can see the console and mounting bracket style here. jpg

Next up is a Ritchie D-85 binnacle mount Compass. I bought this item but decided to go with a different compass for the Newport. It was used when I bought it and it does have some minor scratches in the globe and couple small scratches on the port side of the binnacle mount. The fluid is bubble free but it does have a hint of yellow to it. The compass can be removed from the binnacle and flushed mounted into a console if you so wish. All in all a good compass. Binnacle is about 5" dia while the card is 3". the binnacle is 3" tall and the compass over all is 4.5" tall and it does have a light.

Finally is a vintage airguide compass of my 1976 Newport. Though it is not the usual Ritchie compass, I have seen these on some of the 70's vintage 13's & 15's. I do not think it was an factory piece like the Ritchies but more of a dealer installed option. I was surprised to see it on my boat when I bought it. It really is a cool vintage compass and in great condition. There is a couple small areas of minor paint imperfections but hey it is 32 years old. The fluid is bubble free and still clear. It does have a built in red light for night use. The hood can be removed and the set screws are still there. I am going to use a compass that can be better viewed from above for the Newport. Unlike the Montauk console the Newport is much lower and I stand right over top of the compass if I am at the helm. This compass is best view straight on or in a sitting position. I have thought I should just keep the compass to go with the boat but honestly it should be used and I hope to find it a good home. the binnacle is about 4" in dia and the compass in 4.5' tall overall. No plastic is all cast metal and glass. Really a quality piece.
