Scanmar Monitor Install

Monitor Swing Gate
Monitor ready for install on swing gate
In preparation for my planned trans-Atlantic voyage I purchased a Scanmar Monitor wind steering device.  I was told by some friends that it was a simple install.  Reading the instructions for a standard install I would agree.  On the other hand adding the swing gate has substantially increased the install time.  There are a lot more parts and brackets to be installed.

Monitor's are expensive even in the used market.  I was delighted at the quality and of Scanmar's installation support.  I am grumbling less about the price.

I will let you know how it works out once Reboot is back in the water (with the new rudder) and I have a chance to try out the Monitor.
