Re: Raymarine Autopilot

Dan G is still responding to emails, however he was cruising in Mexico.
When one of my S3G's was declared dead by Dan I was able to source a Smart Pilot X30 on eBay from a weekend sailor that needed something shinier. It had a better wiring harness and other than that it was pretty much plug and play.
That model uses all the same drives, compas, rudder indicator and seatalk.

Our Raymarine S3G course computer is not working again. The first repair in 2017 was just a software issue that was easily remedied. This time I'm getting the same "Drive Stopped" error message on the ST7001 control head. I have checked symptoms, and it seems tha1t the rudder reference, clutch, motors and compass are all working. I've waiting to hear back from Dan Gerhardt about repairing the S3G, I don't know if he is still in business.
