    Autopilot installation issue

    Thanks for sharing this :) I have contacted Hunter technical support. What I notice in their instruction that you shared, is that Hunter describes the importance of obtaining a 90 degrees angle to the AP drive tiller arm and with the instructions I got for the 44 ds it describes a location for...

    Autopilot installation issue

    If it is exactely like the Hunter pictures, I don't get that they went for the much shorter moment tiller arm than is advised by Raymarine.

    Autopilot installation issue

    Okay, here is an interesting problem: I'm busy figuring out how to install the mechanical linear drive on a Hunter 44 DS. It never had an autopilot installed yet. Looks like the steering arm is mounted a bit twisted on the rudder shaft. In the first picture the rudder blade is in the center, but...
