Tiller Drive with Linear Rudder Feedback

Hi,

I am looking for a Tiller Drive with a built in rudder feedback that will be compatible with the B&G Zeus 2.

I have a new B&G Zeus2 paired with Triton units on a sloop.

The Zeus2 Autopilot has the need for a Rudder feedback to be connected. The design of my boat means that I am unable to access the rudder stock, (without substantial modifications), to attach the feedback unit. (The solution came with the B&G RF300 Rudder Feedback Unit (RFU)).

The solution also came with the a RayMarine Linear Tiller Drive (I believe it is the EV-100).

I understand the B&G autopilot has a Virtual Rudder Feedback (VRF) system, but the advice received is that the system really needs the RFU to perform optimally.

So I am looking for a Tiller Drive with a built in rudder feedback that will be compatible with the B&G Zeus 2.

I am hoping someone can suggest a solution, that doesn't require cutting into the stern.

Thanks
Rowan
