    Where did u put joy stick? What batteries did u use ie house,starbord or port?
    Did u hook up in main panel or direct to batteries?

    I had the joy stick installed right bellow the engines control. They used one of the engines battery on mine it was port one . Don't worry about the connections they take care of everything and it was professional installation. All connections for power on/off is on the joystick panel and it will cancell itself after a while if you forget to turn it off. And it is even programmable for some functions.Looks at the size of the wires they used on the batterie 

    Here some pictures.

    That is one heck of a hole saw!!! I would hate to be using it when it bites really hard. It would twist your arm off.
    That is a good looking install! Very professional!

    I find it amazing that they would drill that by hand. I would think if its not perfectly straight it would affect the operation of it. Just sayin.....
