My boat came with an older tiller pilot (Raymarine ST1000) that was convienently (
) stored in the bilge
by the previous owner. I intially never used the tiller pilot.
Earlier this summer I tried it out and found that it would not power on. I opened up the casing and found it filled with water
. There was a fair amount of rust on the electrical
circuit boards, etc. I dried it out and cleaned it up as best as I could but haven't plugged it back in yet because the boat is currently stored for the winter.
Is my tiller pilot toast? Would the water
damage render it worthless? Any chance it's repairable? Worth repairing? I'm not that great with electrical
"stuff" so I appologize for the naive questions.
