Raymarine ST2000

Anyone have an opinion on the Raymarine ST2000 unit, i.e., reliability, durability, etc. ?

generally their products are excellent although it seems pricey compared to most other units on the market,however assumng your boat is the c&c in the pic,i think this unit would do the job for alot less.
West Marine: Autohelm Series ST1000 Plus Tiller Pilot Product Display
my freind has a 78 c&c 26 with a similar system,i believe it might be the same one,i could call him to be sure.
a good pace to find this kind of stuff for a good price is Holland Marine Products
especially for other parts for your boat,this guy has everything.

I installed mine in 2004, so I have only four years on the unit. I never have had a problem with it. I did install the rudder position sensor, to make sure that the unit did not hunt around too much. Generally when I am out it is on, unless I am racing, tight quarters or lots of traffic. I would estimate I have used the unit 2,000+ hours, under sail, and power.

The protective boot that covers the motor connector needs to be replaced, it tore, and I had to replace the cover, Someone stole it while on the hard. It is one of the most used peices of equipement I have on my boat, definately makes single handing much easier.

Highly recommend that you make a spray cover for the unit. It is a pretty common issue with the ST1000/2000 units that water will get in through the display/control area and cause problems. A spray cover makes this far less likely to happen. Good units otherwise.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have the ST2000 and ST1000 as a back up. The ST2000 has a remote ST6001 head by the chart plotter to allow for missing the hard water at our low tide. Both units are over 5 yrs old, and work great. The ST2000 does act a little goofy when using a cell phone next to it. Only issue to date.
