Thank you for your welcome Pblais. It's good to be onboard.
My wife and I have just purchased our first, and hopefully our last Motor
Yacht. She is a Trader 39, first registered in 1980, is called 'Carlina' and we are so pleased to have her. She is in exceptional condition with her previous owner spending a lot of money
on her. Now obviously a boat
of this age is going to have some problems, and one that I am hoping that members of this forum may be able to help is with the problem I am having with the Cetrek 701 autopilot
. The problem is that when you have set the AP and switched it on all that happens is that rudders go hard to port and turning the boat
in circles. I know that some old AP asked the boat to do a 360 degree circle to establish a set up, but this is certainly not the case with our AP. So with that in mind is there anybody on the forum who has had any experiences with the Cetrek 701 and experienced similar.
Any help and input would be very much appreciated.
