Hi Bud, I read your recomendations below regarding where to mount the outboard end of the tiller pilot... in my instructions, they require a 90 degree angle between the tiller in the center position and the arm of the tiller pilot... to mount it on the cap rail just before it curves down would put the tiller pin pretty near the end of my tiller.... and though I haven't measured it, it seems further from the recommended distance in the instructions...

In the installations you're familiar with, has the body of the tiller pilot angled back to the tiller in anything other than the 90 degree angle, and if so, did that affect performance at all?

Since my boat doesn't have the typical boom gallows that mount on the cap rail, I'm wondering if I can mount something on my stern pulpit to receive the pin on the outboard end of the tiller pilot.

Related question, do you know of anyone who's connected the Simrad tiller pilot to a Garmin GPS Map (76S I think) handheld GPS unit? I believe that the Garmin is NMEA conversant but don't know if it takes some custom wiring to get them to talk. Any ideas? Don't know how often I'd use Nav mode, but would like the option.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
