Looking for Autohelm

I need to replace my ST 600R Autohelm. If someone is upgrading and would like to sell one, please let me know. I was told that mine got WET and therefore damaged (hmmm... should I really be doing this?)... however, my whole system is set up to steer my boat/yacht with this remote control.

Thanks!

Mine's mounted in the cockpit fully exposed to PNW weather. It's been there for 2 years without any protection from rain and it works fine.

I think someone's blowing smoke about it getting damaged by getting wet.

No water damage

That is good news... It was the tech from RayMarine that was looking at the Autohelm I sent in.l

Interesting
