We have a 1975 Alberg
37 yawl, with an Edson
Wheel. When we bought the boat in 1982, it came with an early Autohelm
1000(? not sure if that's the model, but it is a tiller autopilot). There was a TillerPilot wheel attachment which attaches to the wheel, and a bracket on the side of the cockpit
combing to which the Autohelm
attached. It worked fine and I still have the autopilot
and the wheel attachment (I think I could find most of the items). We subsequently upgraded to a Simrad
, which interfaces with the GPS
(will track to a waypoint).
If you are interested, I'd give the autopilot
and wheel attachment to a good home for the cost of shipping
. I'm currently on Man O War Cay (dirt dwelling this time) in the Abacos til around the first week in April. I could send some photos of the setup once I get home.Send me a private message if interested.
