INSTRUMENTS. Remote Compass Installation. #1

I designed a base for the remote compasses with brass hardware. I determined location to allow adjustment of all nuts, placement of the second remote compass on top and plugging of the wire harness. I marked the location inside the strake’s end. Using a plumb line, I measured 7 feet to the right of the nose and the same to the right of the firewall’s center. I marked them over pieces of duct tape on the floor. I taped a thread line between the two points and, together with a triangle ruler used it as a visual reference for the fore-aft alignment of the assembly, before bonding it in place.
