Hey All! I'm on board! (and looking 4 an old nautech autohelm 2000 manual)

Hi all,

Well I'm finally on board after 6 months of searching for the right boat. I'm at anchor near the mouth of the Niantic River, in Niantic, CT. (hey I better change my location on here, no longer New Mexico) My dog is not sure what to think of this new lifestyle.

The boat came with an OLD autohelm 2000 made by Nautech, not Raytheon.

It has a seperate tiller control unit and an external compass device about the size of an oil can with a knob on top that you turn to the compass heading that you want to steer.

It's not installed so I don't even know if it works, but I'm looking for a manual for it. I've searched the web to no avail. Anyone out there have a manual for this antique??

Thanks, Steve & Kirby (my dog)

Steve & Kirby,
Can't help with the manual but welcome to Sailnet. Glad you're on the water and with us. Niantic is a lovely place. Good luck.

Steve, did you get the Tartan 30? my bro had one of those antiques on his tub, he didnt have a manual either but IIRC it was simple to use. we had our doubts about it too being old but actually worked pretty good.

Thanks Pirate, thats good to know. I hooked this one up the other day and it seems to work well too. I'll probably get a new one and keep this as a spare.

Legacy Autohlem 2000 Manual location

Steve -

The old/legacy Autohelm user manuals are still on the Raymarine site. Go to the Raymarine.com site, select "Customer Service", then on the Retired Manuals list, select Autopoilts, etc. (This is for all you others doing a search for old Autohelm and Nautec manuals.)

Here is the link - replace "#" with "." and remove the space after the slashes "/" (I'm a newbie and can't post links)
www#raymarine# com/ SubmittedFiles/ Handbooks/ Legacy_Handbooks/ Autopilot/ AH2000.pdf

Hope this helps you.

manual

Hi
Looking for a manual for the Autohelm 2000.
I happen to have a new Autohlem 2000 I am selling on E-Bay. Yes it is at least 15 years old but is still new in the the box.
If you like I could run a copy of the manual I have and E-MAIL it to you.

That reference is to the newer unit, not the navtech unit. The navtech unit has a dial on the bottom of the control box with setting of : off, set,1,2,3 and it has a compass dial on top. That's all.

Re: Hey All! I'm on board! (and looking 4 an old nautech autohelm 2000 manual)

Hi guys, I also become an owner of an old Nautech Autohelm 2000 - like described - "control box with setting of : off, set,1,2,3 and it has a compass dial on top" or "seperate tiller control unit and an external compass device about the size of an oil can with a knob on top that you turn to the compass heading that you want to steer"

My unit is working well, the only thing is I do not know how to calibrate the compass. For the moment it's heading +60 deg. The only thing I can imagine at the moment would be to dismount the compass rose and turn it for 60deg.

Does anyone got the manual or would know how the calibration can be done?

Thanks,
Primoz

Congrats on the new boat. Niantic is a great place. As is Stonington a few miles away.
