Compass easy to mount even tho the compass in slightly bigger than the 2" hole to be drilled, it will still fit with some pressure. Nice looking compass, works well. As some of the other reviewers said, mounting the compass as advertised in their picture shown, not a practical location to mount compass, if mounted there, one can not use the front hatch. I mounted the compass a little below and to the right, fit perfect.

Quality Product. Easy to mount. FYI I used a 2" hole saw specifically for wood and pvc and the compass fit the hole perfectly. Used a 4 post electrical terminal block I bought at a local hardware store for $3.19 to run power to the Lowrance Fish Finder and the compass simultaneously from the battery which is mounted via the Hobie battery bracket mounted to the sail mast mount. Another FYI I might add, do not attempt to mount the compass the front hatch lid as shown in one of the pictures unless you plan to cut the hatch opening lip for clearance, which defects it being a sealed a compartment/
