I'm perfectly happy with my steering wheel mounted sport pilot + on my SeaCat 21. It does fine driving the boat trolling in seas up to about close 3-4 footers and then it can't turn the wheel fast enough. my 2cents.

Simrad AP-12H or the AP-11 if you are willing to spend more money. The hydraulic pump can be mounted anywhere and it is the choice of mounting spots that really determines how much noise you hear.

I agree with Thom. You can also help reduce noise by mounting the pump on rubber bushings to reduce the reverberations through the hull.

Try www.brokenlegdave.com. I'll probably be ordering an AP14R from them within the next few days. bethel-marine also had good prices.
