Have you read the RayMarine Linear Drive mounting manual? http://www.raymarine.com/GetFile.aspx?fileId=805&categoryId=3 Are you looking for explicit instructions as where to mount the components or general feedback?

I am looking for how to mount the drive to the rudder stock. there is no room on the F35 but there must be a way?

I have it fitted on my F36/38. I will try and take a photo of it to illustrate how it is fitted, but in short a piece of base is glassed in on the transon from inside onto which the base is secured. This is obviously lined up so the tip of the drive unit is attached to a bolt that is fitted on the rudder quadrant. I am unsure how much space do you have in the back of F35 but F36 is pretty good with a space to spare.

Paul Dennis at Warren River Boatworks in Warren, RI, did mine. He added an arm to the steering quadrant and a mounting plate to the starboard bulkhead. (You don't want to puncture that holding tank!) I'll see if I can get a picture today but not guarantees. Getting in and out of the lazarette isn't as easy as it used to be.
