Autohelm 600 Control unit
 
I have a 1987 Sabre 38 with its original Autohelm 6000 autopilot. Up until this spring it worked flawlessly. But this recommissining the control unit failed. Does anyone know where I can acquire a used or potential new (unlikely) Autohelm 6000 control unit? Raymarine stopping supporting this system 5 years ago. I found a person with an Autohelm ST6000 but the this a different model and the electronics are quite different. My control unit attaches by velcro pads and has a fixed cable connecting it to the computer and flux compass.

My email address is pinskymr@upmc.edu
