Autohelm repair

Like to give a big shout out to CaptDan.
I have an older autohelm autopilot that had stopped functioning properly. I took it to my local electronics installer and they wouldn't even look at it because of it's age.
After some searching here I found CaptDan. Contacted him and he said he would take a look at it. He fairly quickly found some bad solder connections and fixed it. While I know this is only delaying the inevitable I hate to rip out something that has some life left in it.
Thank you Dan and thank you Sailnet for giving me the ability to contact someone half a continent away.
Jim
