We installed an EV200 last year on our Shannon Shoalsailer - the linear drive attached to a tie rod connecting our dual rudders. Unfortunately, the advice from Raymarine
Tech was conflicting and now have to purchase
a new ACU 400 and Type 2 long linear drive.
If you can swing it, consider a Raymarine
authorized installer. It seems that's the only way to get Raymarine's after sale
help. On our own, we found Raymarine to be very unhelpful with advice or assistance in resolving our issue other than buying
a new unit. Will be selling a EV200 and Type 1 linear drive as soon as our new autopilot
is up and running.
The good news is that the EV200 worked great (except for the restriction on our turning radius) and we are very pleased with its features.
