Default Need Help Finding an Autopilot for a Mercruiser I/O

I do not have room behind the helm for an Octopus Helm System. I also do not have the room to mount a Raymarine Sport Pilot to the helm. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

did you check out the remote version of the Octopus drive with the cable?

I converted to hydraulic steering, partially to remove the slop, and because I could run the Raymarinee S1000.

My boat has slow speed wander from hell, and is top heavy deep V....in a nutshell, it's all over the place and the autopilot does great. Never priced the cable versions, but consider total cost.
