I have spent a lot of time planning, tweaking, designing and building my boat in my head—long before I pick up any wood.

So I used brass fasteners (to minimize magnetic interference that might occur with the stainless steel fasteners I use in the rest of the boat) in the area where I plan to put a bulkhead-mounted compass.
