Default Autopilot wanted

I'm looking for a used entry level auto pilot such as a RayMarine Sport Pilot. Not looking to use it for navigation, just looking for a way to keep the boat straight while setting lines. Anyone got anything laying around?

I have a Raymarine ST5000+ that I am selling for $350.
It was partialy installed in my Grady when I bought it.
The head unit was intalled, and so was the gyro compass, both are in good shape.
The pump is brand new and was never installed.
There is no rudder sensor, but it my understanding that this is usually purchased specific for the boat for about $200.
Feel free to email me tmacier@hotmail.com

I've already purchased a Sportpilot+ so I'm no longer in the market but it sounds like FlyingD is looking for the same thing.

Cable steering. The ST5000 is hydraulic I think, Not sure if either of the other will work, but sent emails.

SImrad-Navico or whatever name they're using is still making the AP14R. Comes complete for around 1350.00 and is a snap to install. So easy even a caveman could do it!!! I've got 2 and love em.

There's a AP12R as well which is a bit cheaper. Make sure to measure up the space inside your dash as I believe the drive for these units fits inside the dash vs ouside like the Sport Pilot.
