Mounting the tiller pilot on top of the rise of the caprail, and adding a 5.9" extension to the end of the rod does permit the pilot to be at right angles to the tiller. This location is correct because they assume a vertical rudder, and yours is angled back. If you measure the distance from the rudder at the waterline to this location, you should find it meets their recommended dimension.

For your installation, you need to make sure you clear the stern sampson posts.

I do not know if you can make the NMEA connection. Check with Simrad and Garmin.
