I can't find anything in the installation
manual for the X30 corepack about fore & aft vs athwartship mounting. I have mounted mine on a convenient bulkhead, but it runs fore and aft. I wasn't concerned until I read an installation
guide for their X5 WheelPilot
that specifically stated athwartship mounting. Same company, same autopilot family
, but who knows if all the corepacks require athwartship mounting. Anyone out there with experience in this? The Raymarine
web site is no help as far as I can tell.
