Wheel pilot

Unfortunately my old and once reliable a Navico wp5000 has decided to go kuput

Whilst I am still endeavouring the it now seems impossible task of finding parts or even an old used unit! Any advice in this quarter would be appreciated

I am wondering if I could garnish advice on buying a new/used unit for a 40ft ketch 12000kg.

What are good brands with a reasonable price

A reasonably robust heavy duty unit

Any old second hand units that can be recommended that seem to be holding the test of time

I do go blue water but understand that I probably won't be able to afford the more offshore capable units

Wheel pilot probably the best for me at this stage

Thanks for your time and advice

Cheers

Re: Wheel pilot

The best wheel pilot, and capable of handling a boat your size, is the CPT autopilot. Mine is more than ten years old, used on a 37ft 20000lb boat, and I love it. Go to
