Re: Tiller Pilot
Given what you've said Squidd, I would personally go with the 2000. Given your description of being close to the max. displacement, plus wanting to mount it closer to the pivot point, both would lead me to go bigger. But $$$ may dictate otherwise.
I went through the tiller pilot purchase recently, and with one season under our belt I can say I am very pleased with our Raymarine pilot. It appears robust, and response speeds are adequate for most conditions. That said, ours is the largest Raymarine tiller pilot (X-5 GP), so this may not be a useful comparison.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
