"I would imagine you would mount the drive unit on the fwd bulkhead of the cockpit, but I am not familiar with your cockpit, so couldn't say for sure. To get it right, you are going to have to measure it."

"That looks perfect. I called and he wants to know how I'm going to mount it. Do you know how best to mount it? My boat is in Thailand so I can't take any measurements. A picture would be great if someone had one. Thanks!"
