Re: Autopilot Install

I really like PaulinVictoria's access plate installation.....that is brilliant!

On my boat I made a box out of some scrap teak and a small piece of lexan to mount the control head in and the chartplotter on. I cut the fittings off one end of the cables and ran all the wires through the pedestal tubes, then reconnected the fittings using a micro terminal block in the pedestal box.

Good luck whichever way you go!
