Mystery plug, who knows what it is?

Anyone know what this plug is? I'm still figuring out this new boat. It's at the nav station. Behind it the wire is coiled up and not attached to anything.

Figured someone will probably know right away. Thanks for the help!

It's an Autohelm connector. There's usually a very small diameter "O"-ring around it in a tiny groove to make it waterproof.

What Ann said. Looks exactly like my Raymarine tiller controller/power connection.

Thanks team. That was just as easy as I hoped it would be. Now I just need to figure out where the cord needs to go and track down a control head.

Yep, my wired remote for Raymarine ST4000mkii plugs into one of those.
