Seek comments: Raytheon autopilots

I have had 3 Raytheon wheelpilots over the years. Mainly the ST4000 which is appropriate for 30-35 boats. Generally, I have been very happy with the product. While no perfect, it is fine while motoring and when the helm is in good balance sailing. With any autopilot, make sure the fluxgate compass is free from magnetic influence. I had a boombox near mine and had to move the boombox as the magnets in the speakers where throwing the heading off. Good luck.
