A spare rudder, keel, mast, boom, portlights, anchor roller - a spare Oyster wouldn't be out of the question - haven't you been reading the forums?

Re: Spare parts Raymarine ST 7000

What type of drive on your autopilot (wheel, linear, hydro...)?

Ah, then you would not have seen the humor in my first post. Believe me, it is hilarious and worthy of the finest professional comedy...

But please accept my welcome! Like I mentioned, others will have more information for you. The only thing I can suggest is that you make the mount extra strong and carry an extra quadrant bolt (see post #13 here): How Strong an Autopilot do I Need?

Re: Spare parts Raymarine ST 7000

Gerard,

There are not too many typical "spares" for autopilots. One could always carry an extra control head and/or computer and/or linear drive, etc - but you are basically carrying a whole extra AP by this time.

If your linear drive is old, you may consider a set of brushes for its motor. The quadrant bolt listed in a previous post makes sense also. Maybe a rose joint for the end of the drive arm, since these sometimes seize.

If you would like a twofer, another compass added into the system gives you backup for the chartplotter, etc.

Hopefully others with that system will chime in.

Mark
