If you look under my CF profile in my "sundry pix" album, I just posted a few photo
details of our setup for a fellow Swanson owner. Included in the photos is our chain drive autopilot
. I suspect chain drives are considered a bit old fashioned these days but to the credit of the system it has been managing our 17 ton boat
for 25 years or more, and 42000 miles, and is still going strong. It is not pretty compared to the ram type but I expect it would be a lot easier to repair under way.
