I''d like to install an Autopilot (ST 1000/2000 by Rayethon) in my 28'' Sail boat.

Any comments or recommendations, based on real experience with these?

Great experience with the ST2000 Tillerpilot on an Islander 28.

An Autohelm ST2000 tillerpilot on our previous Beneteau First 325 performed flawlessly for 14 years.

The ST1000/2000 are on the displacement borderline for most 28''s. Recommend the 2000, it has performed very nicely on our Islander 28.

I know that I should not revive a dead post but since I am new I can't PM Rich directly so I thought I would give this a shot, I apologize in advance.

I have an Islander 28 and I am about to install the ST2000 and I am wondering if there are any tips I should know or if there is a need to purchase any additional items such as an extender for the install.

Again, sorry for reviving this thread and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
