Im about to install my autopilot
on my tiller, its a autohelm
simple question, it says that the unit needs to be installed 600++ mm off the centerline of the rudder
understandable so that its in the middle of the rams range of movement.
then it says that it needs to be installed 420 mm from the center of the rudder
ideally i would like to install it a little short of this, maybe around 300++ mm, and the units well overpowered for my steel
yacht of 28 ft 5.5 ton so the ram should be able to move my rudder under all circumstances
who can answer this with a logical reason?
thanks in advance
