Thanks! I would have mounted the tiller pin in the wrong place for sure... so, then, would it be simply a matter of drawing the right angle to the tiller from that spot on the caprail and drilling the pin hole there? (since it sounds like it would be a pain to measure from the rudder at the waterline lol....)

When you say "clear the stern sampson posts", are you concerned about the tiller pilot arm clearning or the tiller itself clearing?

The tiller, when no one is holding it, doesn't clear the sampson posts... to do that, I'd have to shim the tiller handle up, which I could do if necessary. When using the windvane, it never needed to move the tiller any further than the sampson posts, so, I was figuring the same for the tiller pilot...
