Re: Autopilot PS 34

We installed the Raymarine Wheel Pilot model a few years ago and it seems to work fine. I believe it's rated for up to 16,500 # displacement. However, if I were to do it over again, I would go with a below deck mount with the drive arm attached directly to the rudder post for the added benefit of having an independent emergency steering system. Also much less operating noise. Space below deck in the 34 steering area is limited but the installation is doable.
