Help choosing autohelm replacement
Hi all.

Our autohelm died just at the end of the season

The drive died once before in 2011.

We were fortunate to be able to have it refurbed and get a few more years out of the old Autohelm 4000 but I think it is all over now. The control unit is done for.

I am looking to get a new one before we launch again next Spring.

We have a 1985 Tartan 34. We have no modern electronics so don't need anything fancy to hook to a plotter etc.

All I want is something reliable to use as an extra deck hand while hoisting sails, motoring or sailing in light/moderate conditions. I don't want to spend a ton of money on the hardware or install. Ideally it wouldn't be a big power hog either.

Suggestions welcomed.
