I'm also currently working on implementing a chain counter for my windlass using an ESP8266 and Node Red via MQTT. If I PM you, would you also be able to send me the details too? Thanks, Peter
Yes Im using ESPEasy also so a peek at your settings would be great.

Just seen your post wrt ESP8266/NodeRed chain counter. I also use OpenPlotter/NodeRed/ESP8266 to monitor and control my boat systems and my next project was going to be a windlass chain counter so if you can share any more info on yours Id be very grateful. Particularly interested in how you differentiate UP & Down and how you translate pulses into chain length.

Some years ago, you indicated you were repowering your C&C34. Curious if you got the engine out of the boat without cutting the deck or companionway. Appreciate your insights. Cheers, Fred

06-10-2013 10:18devilfishNo that is okay. Will continue to look for someone with a C&C33/34 who has a tiller so that I can get a better idea of how the tiller looks and were they put the controls.
05-10-2013 18:28devilfishYes it does, and it should be easy to change. I was trying to find out what the tiller head and tiller looked like and were they put the engine and transmission controls.
05-10-2013 11:15devilfishYes it did come with a wheel. However, the traveller/main sheet is up by the companionway and hard to get to while single handed sailing. Also, have been sailing with a tiller for the last fifteen years and miss the feel and response you get with a tiller. I know the boat was designed with a tiller but can't seem to find anyone who has one. Have tried cncphotoalbum but can't find much info on the tiller. That is why I am trying to contact anyone that has changed from wheel to tiller.
