Lap around Santa Cruz with Taylor

This is a trip with Taylor and her friend, Alexia, around Santa Cruz Island. We saw and did it all.
Fished the West End, saw whales and dolphin, found a secluded beach to explore, hit Coches and Albert's, surfed Mar Metta, hiked and swam at Scorpions.  Perfect conditions and the girls were awesome.

Crow's Nest Controls

I spent a day working on getting steering for the crow's nest.  Tim Castagnola gave me a jog lever for steering.  I hooked it up to the autopilot and tried it.  It worked!

So I spent a day wiring the crow's nest and mounting the jog lever.  It DIDN'T work!  In fact the entire autopilot wasn't working.  After a few hours of trial and error, I decided to change out the fuse. It WORKED!

During the Paddle for Sorel, I climbed up there and was able to drive the boat while taking photos.  This is way better than running 4 hydraulic hoses up there or having the wheel attached to a 30 foot pipe that connected to the fly bridge steering.  Simple jog lever and one electrical connection.
