Default Compass Yukon 71 B

Picked up a Compass Yukon 71 B for $12. It was made around 1976 but it still works. Is it a boat anchor or would it be better than a BH 101 which I have. Would appreciate any and all input and opinions. HH. Caveman

Hey Digger, thanks for the feedback. I think I may try mine at our local public park. Have a great weekend. HH
