It should work fine. The problem is that it can draw more amps than the 100 can supply if under a big load. Not sure what happens then?

Re: raymarine type 2s linear drive with type 100 course computer

Hi tchiffriller,

I might be interested in the trade. I have a type 1 that came in my boat but I think a bit too small for a heavy 42' with a big, barn door rudder. I just overhauled my drive, installed new bearings in the motor.

Any info on the age and condition of your drive and where are you located?


Thanks

if it was properly fused to the 100 specs, you'd blow the pilot fuse and lose power to the pilot

if you overfused it to run the type 2, you'd damage the 100.
