I bought an old monitor
about a year ago and didn't realize that it came off a tiller boat...doh, I'm about to fit it to the back of the boat (last minute pre-cruise addition) and I definitely don't have $500 for the monitor wheel clutch
, I do however have an old wheel
adapter from an autopilot
belt style) mounted on the wheel......I was thinking as a temporary (until a used wheel adapter came up or I had the cash to buy a new one) measure I could rig it up as the wheel adapter by drilling two holes into it and attaching two lines to it, then when I wanted to engage the monitor, tie the lines to the steering
lines on the vane, I know it's a sloppy solution, but I'm pretty sure it would work
any other suggestions/ thoughts?
