Yeah but for that price I'd be willing to risk it also. Even at current prices its only about 1/3 the price of a below deck unit.

Its too bad Raymarine seems to have cheaped out on the drive unit. Like you I currenly have a 4000 and would be happy with a wheel pilot if I thought it would work as good or better than my current set up.
