    Jared,
    
    12-15 degrees is about right for compass deviation in ME, at least
    then.  I can't remember whether it's west or east though.
    
    I don't believe the gps error was just lack of adjustment for compass
    deviation, either on my part or the installer.  But it's been about
    5-6 years ago.  As I recall, the gps purported to read in true rather
    than magnetic, but it didn't read correctly when I set a course
    between two marks.  I previously had noticed it seemed to be out of
    whack, so was deliberately testing it.  Mentioned it to the charter
    broker when I returned.
