ST1000/2000 Tiller Pilot and NMEA 2000

I think it has become time to replace my ancient Autohelm 1000 tiller pilot. I will make a last ditch effort to fix it, but I am not sure I can save it. If/when I have to repalce it I am looking at the ST2000 from Raymarine. I would like to be able to connect it to a NMEA 2000 wind transducer (future purchase). Does anyone have experience connecting one of these to a NMEA 2000 network?

Thanks,

Don't believe the ST2000 supports NMEA 2000 yet. If you do get a new tiller pilot, one helpful thing you can do to help preserve it is to make a splash sleeve. This is a tight fitting cover that protects the body of the tiller pilot from spray and such.

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.

The ST2000 supports NMEA0183 and SeaTalk. I could use my chartplotter's extra NMEA 0183 connection to talk to the ST2000. The chartplotter also has a NMEA 2000 connection. Or, I could use a SeaTalk to NMEA 2000 converter. I would rather not buy an extra black box since it would only be nice to have the ability to have the tiller pilot follow the wind direction and not a necessity. I do not use my AutoHelm 1000 with the windvane and have gotten along just fine.

I was wondering if anyone else has tried to do this.
