to day so I thought i play with my Simrad autopilot
which we never managed to setup right. After reading the Instructions I found all the positions of the pilot are pretty right. Not quiet 90 degrees to the Tiller and not 100% horizontal but it should be good enough. It is fixed to the tiller at 18inches from the ruder insert point.
It has 9 settings for course correction and we went trough all of them.....we still do the zigzag...... slow in 1 and fast in 9.
I don't know how accurate the fastening points have to be and if that could be the problem . Or the unit is just faulty. I pulled it apart and it looks all good. The grease in there is clean and the belt doesn't slip.
Any ideas out there?
