  • Flinders Bar Omission?

    Hi guys,

    During a chat with a compass corrector last week, I was told that in some small ships, the flinders bar can be done away with?

    I never quite got round to asking why, but can any Master Mariners answer? A lack of vertical soft iron component...?

    Not a master mariner but if there's no big funnel immediately behind the binnacle, then there's not likely to be a big vertical soft iron component. I'm on a twin island container vessel and our flinders bar is made of wood
