Install Raymarine SPX-5 autopilot

To members

The Edson website of traditional steering systems was great help for me to understand the worm gear traditional steering wheel system on the Fuji 32 Ketch.

I am not actually the ower of the yacht. English is the second language for us. The owner was not confident to inquire his issue. So I did instead of him.

However, he is confident to install the autopilot Raymarine SPX-5 on the yacht. Only issue is the drive motor of the autopilot has to be installed aft direction instead of bow direction indicated in the manual. This is still made us wonder the pilot controller display correctly corresponding to the rotation of wheel.

We will inform later after the installation completed.

Please forgive misspelling or grammatical error in the writing.
