Re: 1988 Gulf PIlot House 32 Ft.

Yes my compass is mounted on the inside pedestal as well. I was concerned about the steering mechanism but cant really see it having that kind of effect. If the rudder sensor does not fix the problem then I will tear the fluxgate out..

Stu..thanks. I actually found this site or one very similar before and believe me when I say that I have tried every single possible setting and variation available on a 6 hour run down the strait in calm seas. However that being said, I believe there still may be some other ghost in the machine as I notice that the pathfinder chartplotter tells me that my goto bearing to a waypoint is about 20 degrees off of the actual, even though the gps long and lat position is identical to my secondary gps nav..a Lowrance Elite with navionics charts. This is confusing to no end and I am thinking may have more to do with the problem than I think.
