Merry Christmass to all! Advise needed: I'm bying a used cat. She has almost all we need. But,surveyor paid attention,that existing AP(Raymarine 6002) drive is connected to the helm steering
system. He advised to install a ram steering
,in order to have emergency
steering with AP,if the helm
wire will give up...Appreciating this advise(especially,due to,when I asked the owner if she's got emergency
tiller? He answered:" yes,she's got one,but nobody knows where...") I considered,that it will be better to have a complete reserve autopilot
with own steering..and, if the budget
will afford, I'd like to have one with TAck option and remote
. My questions are:
1). If any maker combine Tack/turn with remote
? So far, I found only Raymarine
wireless remote on the web,but don't see Turn button on P70 head
In contrary, Simrad
,Navman - no remote...
2). Evolution "Sea-talk" unit for a cat...where to install? Hope not need one for every hull
3). if it -Sea-talk- really helps to adjust the boat to conditions of the sea?
Once again,Merry Christmass and Happy New Year!
