Re: SmartPilot X-5 Wheel Drive Unit "Upgrades"?
I've had an X-5 Wheel pilot on my boat for over a year now and it has performed very well...my original perception of it when I took it out of the box was "uh-oh, this looks like a flimsy P O S".......and the housing is pretty lightweight but it has held up being used almost every weekend since I installed it, mostly on daysails on the river but also on a couple of overnight sails in the Atlantic. If there is a weak point it would have to be the gears as previously mentioned.
