Re: autopilots ?

thank you Andy.
My friend Phil on S/V toslo had one on his 50 ft sailboat and certainly was pleased with the performance.

My swan has a neco with strong electric motor. I also have a robertson but would like to try a new one.

My only experience is with the Alpha 3000... and it's more than 2 decades of excellent service.

Thank you, Do you know if I could use the compass already on the Swan to talk to the Alpha system ?
