Greetings. I have a 1974 hinckley Bermuda-40 mark3 yawl with original autopilot which was functioning until last season. Needs replacement. Has rotary drive under cockpit with gear and chain driving quadrant on rudder post. Want to have reliable simple unit that works well in rough water. What is best choice for my boat? Thanks.
I have a Raymarine ST 60 Maxiview which works fine except the screen is failing. Is there a replacement screen or other fix available, and failing that, is there a Raymarine product that can replace the MaxiviewSee More

My customer wants to upgrade his Raymarine autopilot system with the EV 200 system running an existing type 1 pump in a 40' twin diesel power boat. We will be replacing the existing old T300 course computer, heading sensor, and smart heading sensor (gyro+2) as well as the ST-7000 control head. He wants to retain his RL80C-RC V4.1.1 for radar and plotter function with NMEA 0183 output to the pilot as well as an alternate Laptop plotter running NavTrek navigation software which outputs NMEA…See More
I had my VHF (S Horizon DSC GX1200) and my A Pilot Display (Raymarine ST6002) interconnected to a old Garmin GPS via NEMA 0183. I replaced the GPS with the a65 Multifunction Display, but it only came with the power cable. The unit has the port for network, but did not came with the cable. What cable I need to buy and how I interconnect my VHF & A Pilot Display via NEMA 0183.See More
"Thanks, but we are currently in St. Thomas and will be on the move for the next few months. I'll try one of the local Raymarine dealers and see if someone can look at it. If not, I'll send the unit in when I return to the U.S.…"
