          Comments about Rudder Position Indicator:

          I was having such a hard time learning to drive our boat because I didn't know if the rudders were straight. I checked with the shop about installing an indicator and was told it would be about $800. A friend found this one in the catalog. WOW what a difference! Now I'm driving like a champ!!

              Installed on a vertical wheel, it will register wheel movement in a direction but will not return to center with the exact wheel movement returning to rudder amid ship.
