Raymarine Service Manuals

I saw on another thread the service manual for the ST4000+ auto pilot. Glad to know these manuals exist. Now to find the rest of them, does anyone have the ST60, RD218, 125GPS, smart controller, DSM30, or the classic C-series service manuals?

Unfortunately I wasn't able to find anything there, even the users manuals.

When you say Service Guides are you talking about manuals that would be helpful in repairing one of these units? I seriously doubt Raymarine or anyone in the marine electronics business is going to share that sort of info. That would take $$ out of their pocket and everyone knows you're not supposed to actually fix this stuff just toss it in a landfill after 18 months and buy the newest gear.

If I were as rich as the IRS likes to think I am then I would just toss the whole kit every year.
I'm an electronics engineer so the repairs, when possible, shouldn't be a problem given the proper documentation. When I saw the proper service manual for the ST4000+ the other day I started looking. I did find someone in Latvia selling them on E-bay but I'd rather get them from a fellow sailor if possible.

Gord will have the answer I'm sure. He is the original search engine.

I'd be interested in a source for technical manuals too. My ST5000+ linear drive is haunted and Raymarine wants $650 to service. Probably just a stuck clutch solenoid inside.

No one has PDF of any of these manuals?

Gord, I'm sure you can find them somewhere.
