Logo... i'm curious amongst all the other items you've shown us, if you have made headway on the below deck autopilot?  I can't remember if that was part of your list for this round, or if that will be later.

So it looks like you moved the tiller arm below the radial drive.  Did you make a thinner one?  I seem to remember you didn't have room there.

There was always room below the quadrant, reason I had it above is because I wanted to have it point forward for east access and I didn’t want to make the tank shorter to clear the tiller arm. New layout will have the tiller arm offset to port side and be pointing aft. I think it’s the best compromise for a lot of factors. Time to make a mount…

Gotcha... looking forward to seeing how you do it.  Just completed the last bit of plumbing today for the boiler.  Should be able to fill it up and test later this week.
