#45348, "RE: Here's the real deal"
In response to In response to 14


          

Found this re compass platform but does not say what the deck was constructed of.

"The navigating appliances included, in addition to two compasses on the captain's bridge and one on the docking bridge aft, a standard compass on an isolated brass-work platform in the center of the ship, at a height of 12 feet above all iron work and 78 feet above the waterline."

As I said it does not matter that it was 12 feet above all iron work as the others were not and I cant believe they would attempt to make the compass steered by any less reliable and accurate than any other. There must be another explanation for its elevation and my guess is height of eye and clearer view.
