Maverick and Ascot II in Raglan Harbour

 On April 4 a couple of compass adjustment jobs in Raglan entailed a fairly long drive from home to the middle west coast of the North Island. Raglan is famous for surfing and is also home to a few commercial fishing and charter vessels. First of the mark was a well kept charter vessel called the Maverick owned by Aaron Laboyrie who farms dry stock and charter fishes part of the year.

Next it was out on the Ascot II to adjust his Saura Keiki compass. Ascot II is a steel gill netter, fishing mostly for sharks out in the Tasman Sea. Hard work at the best of times says me who used to fish the Tasman also.

  1. I would like to introduce best magnetic compass adjustment surveyors in uae Magnetic compass adjusting and plotting of deviation card.
    Magnetic compass surveys are carried out and large errors are corrected on site, with remnant errors, a deviation card is issued which needs t be displayed on board vessel. For more information visit
