Hi Bill,
good recommentation. Thank you very much.
This may be the easiest way. Just have to find some of the old parts on the market.

Hi Rainer,
which Windpilot do you have installed? Would be great if you can share a picture.

Hi Warren,
the autopilot drive is connected to the steering wheel. It is a rotary drive from Autohelm and was installed originally by Amel when MickMoon was build in 1989.
This autopilot does work quite well with some limitations on strong winds and wave from the back. The more modern autopilots will do much better as they do have modern motion sensors and better software.

On my Sharki I use a Windpilot with it’s own rudder...not cheap, but after 2 years it’s some of the best money I spent.
My Neco is also 40 years old and still works perfect but I like the Windpilot for its quietness and no need for electricity plus it gives me an emergency rudder ....

The Navico is mounted sideways and does not create problems with the bulkhead. You have to test based on the pilot you want to buy.
I use it as a reserve in the event of an emergency going by motor, if unfortunately the Neco breaks.  When sailing, I use the wind vane which has all the power and sensitivity I need on any occasion.  However, what I can tell you is that the Sharki is a well balanced and light boat at the helm and if you hoist the right sail, even a pilot on the wheel could get along quite well.  However, if you intend to face big journeys you must have a powerful and reliable pilot and not just a pilot on the wheel.

My Sharki has still the original equipped Neco 392 autopilot. The best autopilot I ever have seen and used. It works even with wind and waves from backwards when most autopilots fails and gave up. Sadly the Neco are not manufactured anymore. When you see a used one for selling buy it.

Great advice.
Exactly what we do, except for selling it later. We let our spare go with the boat when we sold it.
We found all of the components, used, but serviceable, on line....

A failure of any component can cause the system to fail. Individual components are easy and fast to install. Maybe you should consider having one of each of the components ready to go. You will likely have to search for a used Control Head and Computer, and can probably find the other components in new condition. 

The used components can probably always be sold again for what you will pay for them. What I suggest is like "renting" a backup system at zero cost.

I know that Amel did install on the bigger models two autopilots, but I have never seen a second autopilot installed on a Sharki.

Not that much of a long shot.  Bill was on my boat in October and spotted the same thing.  Once I re-sealed the cable from the Genoa furler my forward lockers dried right up.  Amazing how much water can leak down that cable!

It could be the hatch seals on the port bow locker.... if you get water over the bow and the hatch seals are leaking, the water will wick down the security rope ans ewnd up on the wall of that small internal locker.

I assume that you have eliminated obvious sources like hatch and fixed plexiglass ports. So...this may be a long shot, but, check the RTV seal on the cable from the Genoa furler where it meets the stainless tube. I have seen water enter here and follow the cable until it bends, then drip-drip. There could be enough salt on the cable and deck to make it taste salty.
