Default What AutoPilot do I need?

30' Proline WA
Twin 225 Honda's

Raymarine E120's
Raymarine E80's
12kw Super HD Digital open array

Guessing I want to stick with Raymarine - but does it really matter?
I don't know squat about AP's other than I had a Simrad AP16 in my Hatteras.
Pressed a button and it worked!

If it doesn't matter what I use - what should I get?
I'll be doing a fair amount of cruising up and down the bay, so I'd like more than simple
one point and go.

Stick with Raymarine get the EV200 hydraulic T70157 we have it on our new boat easy to use once you get it dialed in,

Simrad AP24VRF would be my immediate recommendation. Feel free to call me to discuss further at 410 443 8555

The EV200 from Raymarine would be perfect. It is a very nice pilot and you would get to control your autopilot from your existing Raymarine units. While this is not a big deal, it is some enhanced functionality that saves few keystrokes.

EV200 is my choice. I had a Raymarine 5000st. The new unit was plug and ride. Does not need the rudder feedback unit. Self-installed in about 3 hours.
