Anyone have any ideas on how to mount a autopilot like the ST 2000 to a small cat that only has a tiller bar ,I'll get a better pic of tiller bar up soon

Re: Autopilot installation help

It would be helpful to see a picture from above, but I'd suggest just connecting the tiller end of the AP to one of the tiller arms, or even to the cross bar. I suspect the problem will just be finding somewhere that the unit itself isn't in the way of something else. You'll probably have to make/modify the mounting brackets for both the tiller end and the base unit end. As an example, for attaching to the cross-bar you could just clamp a block of plastic or wood to the cross-bar with hose clamps and install the mounting pin into the block.
