Tiller pilot/Monitor

Hi all, We used a tiller pilot/Monitor setup for several years with
good success. The fabrication was mine and none too clean. One
problem was the exposure and vibration to the pilot hanging out back.
We are about to set it up again but with a change. We will mount the
pilot in the cockpit and run a good quality control cable to the
Monitor. should be easier on the pilot, make the controls handy and
make the mounting actually easier. If anyone is interested, I’ll post
pics of the setup when complete(1-2 weeks). Trust me, it won’t be
pretty.

Yes, I would be interested in what you come up with.
Did your previous setup handle all points of sail well, how about weather conditions?

Add my support to your work and pretty or not, I would like to see what you come up with.
