nice thing about cpt is that, when you call them, you get the engineers on the phone
- not customer service
. the story i heard was that two engineers who had previously used the cpt bought the whole company a few years ago.
i called them when i decided to try using the cpt and they were really helpful. they suggested that i might want to send in the whole unit for service
as it was at least a dozen years old. for $150 they tested and serviced it and that was about five years ago. we use it for all open water
sailing, like crossing the gulf stream
or the bahama banks. in close quarters i still prefer to steer myself, although i admit to enjoying just sitting behind the wheel and watching the cpt steer the boat....
