Below Deck Autopilots
I am looking to replace the AH4000 on my Ericson 38-200, since its not working and I''d rather put the boat units toward something more modern than fixing something that is likely to have anothe component go bad soon anyway. And since I''m not satisfied with the tracking of my ST4000+ in my old boat, I am considering a below-deck, rate gyroed pilot, which should hopefully steer better with more rapid course adjustments.
So between the three major brands -- B&G, Simrad, and Raymarine -- what are their differences, reputations, dependability etc.? What do you guys like and why?
