autopilot query

Hi fellowsailers

This is my first post I just joined up today and my wife and I are planning to do a lot more coastal cruising around Nova Scotia and therefore need a reliable 3rd helmsman called auto.

We have a 37 oday center cockpit and our autohelm 3000 analog compass takes a surgeons hands to set up an often it goes off wandering within the hour.I need to get a user friendly autohelm within my limited budget and I like what I read about the autohelm st3000 and st4000 with push button controls. My boat loaded weighs16000 lbs and I am looking for advice as to what is my best choice for a secondhand autohelm? Does anyone have a good working used autohelm that will handle my 37 cc Oday. If not what is recommended for a new autohelm giving the best bang for the buck. I do want to do it right.

Appreciate your feedback
