Default RE: Simrad AP12 --- Anyone Have One? Opinions

Getn Busy Livn
To me that is not a bad insallation price.It took me around one week to do the install a couple hours a night. Figuring out where you want to locate everything is probrally the most important.

1) I had a hard time finding the correct fittings around here they are not standard fittings. Instead of wasting a bunch of time I went to the Teleflex website and they had a kit with everything you need for your AP installation.
2) I thought about the bildge but if something happens to the pump I wanted very easy access. On your boat you have more than ample space in your Console for your installation. Your computer must be in a dry location High up in your console would work.
3) I had no experience with hydraulics but everything is very straight foward and very easy to install. Between Telflex and Simrad there is plenty of information to do the hydraulics.

If you decide to do it yourself I would be happy to answer any questions you might have. Tight lines--------------------------Mark
