Raymarine.....would you buy them now?

Hello, I have been window shopping for the X-5 autopilot and ST-60 sailing package for a while mainly due to price! I wonder if I should buy a set now @ $2400 for both or should scrap the idea considering they are about to tank as a company?


I currently have the OE equip Datamarine goods on my C-30 and a autohelm 4000 wheel pilot. Would you reccomend a changeout for newer or repair what I have AKA a working AH 4000 and working DM except the wind which tells speed but no direction (I understand these are rebuildable).

I want the slim new look to the Raymarine and the coupling of wind+autopilot too

Thanks

Josh

I love to sail, coming from a Swordboat capt's loin one would think I'd of caught the bug long before now! Oh well, this ones for you Bisque...(My Father may he RIP)

Now If I could only stay away from working on the damn things I could sail more!
