I have two sets of questions:
1) My rotary drive has failed. I makes sounds as if it is receiving the signal but the wheel does not turn. Is it a failing clutch? If that is the problem can it be repaired without sending it to Raymarine?
2) I am preparing the boat for the Marion Bermuda Cruising race taking place this year and would like to add a 2nd backup linear drive, preferably hydraulic. I would prefer the hydraulic because it is more robust, it has less parts to fail and can handle stronger forces with less energy spent. Has anybody added a hydraulic linear back up drive to a SM2K?
Any pros and cons arguments welcome.
