Aries Wind Vane Self Steering help
 
I just got most of an Aries Wind Vane.

It came with everything except the servo rudder. Anyone have dimensions, so that I can construct one?

Also, this thing is going to ruin my swim ladder access, which is really the only good spot for getting in and out of my boat. Has anyone come up with an ingenious way to mount it, so it will swing out of the way if you want to swim?

You have a wide transom, so it looks like there's room to remount the ladder on one side or the other...

Can't you mount it off centre ?
