As I have recently been outed as a naysayer and no-nothing I've decided to sell my most vital piece of offshore gear
a deluxe armchair for my future postings.
I have a Raymarine/ autohelm
type 1 linear drive
. This unit is in excellent condition and has autohelm
labels on it. There was discussion a few months back on this thread regarding the various aspects and qualities of the type 1 and it seems most agreed the autohelm models were the most rugged. I uses one a previous 20,000 mile cruise
with no issues or hiccups on a 18,000 lb displacement
I believe this unit to have been reconditioned by raymarine
in the last few years (but don't have the receipts) and comes in a raymarine
box with the new style hull
mounting pivot. It moves in and out effortlessly when powered off and the clutch
locks up when power
applied and goes in and out properly, etc.
$600 includes shipping
in the US. willing to consider shipping
overseas if needed.
