Re: PSC With Tillers, where's your compass?

Just some additional info-when you have a tiller your driving position moves forward getting you much closer to the companionway.All of your instruments have to be moved forward accordingly.My boat left the factory with a tiller and the compass and depth were mounted in the starboard bulkhead with the backs in the small cabinet over the icebox.I have since mounted my radar ,GPS,chartplotter and AIS on a shelf over the companionway slider inside the dodger windshield.I also moved the engine controls (throttle and gearshift) onto the coaming on the starboard side forward of the sheet winch which I feel is where it should have been all along.
