Re: Autopilot replacement recommendations
Are there any Raymarine X-5 users out there that have put this unit on a 15,000# displacement sailboat?
The unit spec states 16,500 but also states to consider the fully laden load, which may be up to 20%. Better than specs are sometimes user comments, pros and cons.
Our primary sailing grounds is Chesapeake Bay with some coastal cursing on the east coast. No open ocean sailing.
Second guessing my Simrad system and design. I have created a layout for the SD-10 linear drive, went out there this weekend and realize that it will be a very tight fix and it may not work or at least, a very difficult install and relocating many things, etc...
