Don't quite follow your reply, Mitch. Bluefin is hardly loaded down with gear (unless you're being....ironic?). And a compass is surely an essential fitting on any kayak owned by a serious mariner---a compass and charts---unless of course GPSs have never been known to fail.
I guess after all of the things listed, the postors attention to detail, I thought that anything more sarcasticly would swamp the boat. I guess since I Kayak in Streams and rivers, I hardly see the use of a compass, plus, you should know the area pretty well before entering it, so I would probably never be in a situation where I needed to use a compass on a Kayak. Plus, you'd probably be better served with two GPS units.. lol
