BEST METHOD FOR INSTALLING BugsCAM to any MOTH

The BugsCAM is the heart of your boat. It is easy to fit and will give you unbelievable control of your boat.

All MOTHS should fit the system this way, including homebuilds.

The best way to install a CAM system into your Moth is how I have done it on my own boat using the SERVICE TUBE KIT.

Advantages being:

If you fit the service tube through from the bow, the control rod goes down this straight to the bell crank, also your wand control lines can use this tube to enter the boat cockpit (very neat). The bowsprit slips into this and is a very strong attachment method.

The Mach 2 kit and the one  on the Bladerider (see pics attached)  (the old setup from my boat) are bolt on setups that utilise the stock production control rod for ease of fitting the system (no boat mods). This is ok but you have to make sure that the control rod is nice and free running.

The service tube kit includes service tube, adjustable control rod kit and bellcrank with the bowsprit, cam gear, adjustable wand and control lines.

MACH 2 KIT includes Mach 2 moulded bowsprit, control rod extension, bellcrank, bowsprit, cam gear, adjustable wand and control lines.
