Raytheon ST-60 instruments

Thank you all. I have in all seven Raytheon instruments on my boat and four are ST-60. I have had little "problems" axcept with the speed/logs performance, so I am very pleased to see these comments. After all, who givs a rats-ass if you have 46 or 48 meter meter under your keel, but if you are jiggling that genoa sheet and the speed display is going up/down 1.50 knots for no darn reason, then you go balistic like me..

I also think the ST-5000 Autopilot could be a bit more "acute" despite being on responce 1 and nine in rudder gain. It sort-of "wobbles" but don''t really wack the rudder hard over, even if we are drifting out of course when becalmed. Most of the time when we go in a straight line at a decent turn of speed it works OK.
Right mates, your knowlage flowing, please!
