Hi-new owner of a couple of Lyle Hess designs

Hi All,

I recently got my first sailboat (a Balboa 20), quickly followed by an Ensenada 20 (same hull but flush deck). When it rains, it pours...

There's a black plastic fitting on the Ensenada's cockpit coaming that I'd like help identifying- I've attached two pictures of it (I hope).

Can someone tell me what this black plastic thing is?

Thanks very much.
Joe

Aloha Joe,
I can't see it very well. Is it in the right position for an autopilot (tiller pilot) or a place to tie off your tiller? Is it on one side or on boat sides?
Kind regards,
JohnL

Thumbs up

Yup,

That looks like the fitting that was with the extra parts in the package my st2000 autohelm came with.

The 'peg' on the back of the unit slips into it. There should be a socket on the tiller for the other end.

Thanks for the responses guys. There are two fittings, one on each side of the cockpit. No tiller pilot that I know of. I still have some poking around to do on the boat; all sorts of things keep popping up.

Hopefully we'll get her out for her maiden voyage tomorrow.

Joe

They could be the base of a type of fishig rod holder. I had a system that used blocks just like them years back'
