Dear Amel community,
We are toying with the idea of installing a second , back up, auto pilot on our older Maramu. The primary autopilot is a BandG connected to the original , bullet proof, rotary drive.
We are looking at the Raymarine evolution system pack - it would then be independent of our other systems and working directly off the quadrant.
However , which model would be preferable and feasible in the limited installation space available plus the max vessel displacement capacity of the units ? , linear (33,000Ibs) or linear long ( 44,000lbs)?
If any other Maramu owners have gone this route , we would be grateful of any experiences information you would care to share . Thanks in advance
Any other pitfalls we need to Consider ??
It is such a privilege to be part of this group!
