Well I may have made a mistake in deciding to go with raymarine
for the autopilot
. I have had better customer support from India
That complaint out of the way, here is my problem, and question:
Examine the pictures of the steering
wants a ball joint attached to the hub, at no more than 5 degrees from co-plainer with the rudder
sensor. That would require machining an triangle to mount on the hub around the rudder
post, and a 2" riser block to mount the rudder position sensor to.
My thought is, why cannot I attach the ball joint to a block and mount that on the cable. That should give me the same push/pull movement to the sensor, shouldn't it?
Thanks for the extra brain power.
