    Comments about Davis Instruments Rudder Position Indicator:

    This is my Third Rudder indicator. All different boats. Easy to use and really helpful when docking, as you always know when the outdrives are straight for twin engines. Only drawback I have is they don't always stick real well. Try Velcro and it works better, plus you can remove it if need be.

            Comments about Davis Instruments 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.
