COMPASSES AND BINNACLES:
One of our store's most extensive collections is made up of vintage compasses and binnacles.  A few have been left in their "as found" salty condition but most have been refurbished and polished.  From old 2-inch box compasses which make great gifts, to full-sized floor stand binnacles, you can always get your bearings at Cuttysark.
