Re: Tiller Pilot on Windvane
We have the same setup. I started with a piece of 1/4" starboard. I used the small monitor blue vane and traced the slot pattern onto the starboard. The L bracket was just a piece of flat aluminum bar that I bent and drilled for the bolts. Lastly, I used a small piece of bungee cord to keep the tiller arm from jumping off of the bolt.
The rail mount was a repurposed bracket that I had for another purpose. I was able to drill a hole for the tiller pilot mount that just slides into the slot.
The tiller pilot has worked well under sail or power.
