I purchased a decorative compass rose onlay for my wood duck 14', and was just wondering if there's a certain "correct" place for this on the boat?
I've always seen them on the top deck just forward of the cockpit area, but can these go anywhere on the kayak?
Was thinking of putting it top deck just BEHIND the cockpit area...in front of the hatch.
I just didn't want to be a complete buffoon and break some kind of dark secret superstitious mariner time rule..kind of like a "don't ever leave port on a Friday, don't take any women on board, and always put your decorative compass rose on the front of your deck" kind of thing..
I know, silly..If it were a real compass I'd know the answer, but wanted to check before I epoxied anything and sealed my fate.
