I have an electrical Raymarine
The tiller control arm is separate from the control unit.
While the system does what it is supposed to do, stear the boat, I have the problem that I need to climb on the portside stern if I want to engage the AP (=hook the pilot ram on the tiller arm).
On a mono this would pose no problem as the tiller is in the cockpit
To disengage quickly, I rigged a release line into the cockpit
. This works fine.
Still, to climb on the stern to reengage in wavy conditions is dangerous and I'd like to avoid it.
I am pretty sure others have the same problem.
Did anyone find a solution to avoid it?
Is there a tillerpilot which can be put into neutral? I know that wheel
pilots can be disengaged by loosening the drive belt or putting a hydraulic ram into neutral. But on a normal electric
I would love to keep tiller steering
and would really hate it to change to a wheel
Do you have pics of your set-up?
