    Simrad Autopilot

    It was working then stopped. I downloaded latest software and that didn’t really help. I just spoke with a field engineer last week who gave me a couple things to try when I’m out there this coming weekend. Biggest problem was getting someone to talk to me that actually knew what they were talking about. Hopefully it gets straightened out Friday. Part of the problem he thinks is because I have dual outboards. Need to recalibrate turn rate, vrf and tell the system it needs more voltage, and making sure it calibrates based on max starboard and max port

    Simrad Autopilot

    So frustrating... I had the ev-150 on my last boat and it worked flawlessly. Tough to fish without it...how was it done 20 years ago..lmao
  5. I have an AP-44 Simard autopilot that will not hold course. I’ve called Simrad several times, I’ve downloaded most recent software and gone thru the whole menu of Checklists...and calibrated several times. I’m trying this as a last resort before I tear it out and go to a Evilution Autopilot. Thanks PM
  6. I think thats my plan. I have zero experience with this type of repair, but I can’t find anyone interested in doing it. Thanks for your input....maybe I have a chance..lol
  7. Do you know anyplace I can have that done? I doubt that’s in my wheel house.
  8. Check out Great Lakes Planers. The guy who runs the business is Tony. https://www.greatlakesplaners.com/
  9. What’s the best way to repair the door hatch cracking? I was thinking about using the West Marine System....looking for some advice. Thanks
  10. I have a Raymarine Axiom 12RV MFD and am considering a new radar system to replace the older vintage radar on my boat today which is approximately 12 years old and only accessible on the older C70. Does anyone have any experience, installation or other with this product? WiFi shouldn’t be an issue in Oswego, but I’m not sure I have the experience to tackle this without some guidance. Looking at install manual, it appears the only cable is a power cable. Thanks PM
  11. Thanks for the input...I really appreciate it.
  12. Has anyone with a 30’ boat or larger launched at this site? If so are there any challenges associated with it and if so what? I’m planning an early May trip to fish Chamount but have concerns about launching considering I can’t get in touch with any of the Marina’s for direction. Thanks
