Need Autohelm 4000 Control Box!
Just checking if anyone has an old (80's, early 90's) Autohelm 4000 Control Box sitting around? It is the black box with six rubber buttons and one rudder dial and four contacts on the cord. It is not the ST4000.
We are cruising down the ICW and blew our control box by having it out in the rain... I didn't know that was beyond their capabilities. Anyways, we also have a Monitor vane we use primarily when sailing any distance and the wheel pilot served its purpose just fine up until now. Anyways, until the day comes where we change it out completely, I am hoping to get a control box that was in good shape, if anyone has one.
I checked with Raymarine and they do not support this unit any longer...
I would be willing to pay a fair price plus shipping if it would get us moving down south!
Oh, and I know they are notoriously junky so no need to debate the best autopilot...
