You won't get any joy from the web site. If you mean the hinge for the rudder
shaft that an older model has, you will need to find a used one. I can't think of another "hinge" in an aries?
I attached our tiller pilot to the wind vane
side. At first, it attached right to the plywood
vane, it actually broke it. Now I have a piece of fiberglass
that I use instead. It has enough flex to eliminate that problem. Still, stuff happens every once and a while and a tiller pilot isn't made to do this. It's designed to push and pull a tiller not operate a windvane
. There is no way a tillerpilot can keep up with the wind
and the way the sea pushes a boat around. It has to work way to hard sometimes and it only takes one time and it's toast.
