Re: Auto pilot

Ev200 linear drive setup just south of $3500.
I ran a 4000+ wheel drive with a rudder sensor on my 37 cutter 22000 pounds. Worked OK but that boat balanced well.

I didn't have enough room for a below deck pilot, so I had no choice but to get a wheel pilot. Best upgrade I have done.

My cpt was onboard when I bought the boat ten years ago. I packed it up and shipped it to cpt to be checked out and reconditioned, thinking I would keep it as a backup while I installed a "real" ap, belowdecks. Jeff charged me $150. Ten years later I still havent installed a belowdecks pilot. That cpt performs so well I dont even think about changing it.

Take two at low eight
