PS... Make sure they do a good job cleaning up the fluids. If that stuff mixes with water and sloshes around your bildge it makes a real mess and could also mess with your bildge switches. We had an oil leak they didn't do a very good job cleaning up after and both bildge switches went a short time afterwards. I don't think that was coincidence.

Thanks for the tip, Thankfully nothing reached the bilge area. Maiden voyage was Sunday. The auto pilot is not perfect with a cross winds and current. I have to say it did better then I could do!!!! No tangles while trolling and was nice to land a fish and not have to worry about the boat going off course. I tested it as 35 mph and same thing , will take some getting used to but a nice addition to the arsenal.

Glad you got it all hooked up and working correctly. Did you do the install yourself and if so how difficult was it??

I know my limits and had it professionally done. It took him 4-5 hours plus having all the tools and knowledge etc.

Auto pilot update, Have had it fixed a few times now. They have now put in the High pressure fittings ? I am not sure what was in before but it was leaking 1 -2 drop every 6 hours. Performance has been very good to fair. Seems when there is little to no wind has a hard time but a little wind and current it is perfect. We have been playing with the settings and it is getting better. Switch to performance mode and reaction time much better. At speed 24-30mph holds a straight line but every once in a while falls off, but it does come back eventually. It is a work in progress.
