Default Raymarine EV-150 AP

Anyone have any info on a Raymarine EV-150 AP? Looking for an AP for a 25' single inboard with a 10.2 cu in ram. I like the Sitex SP110 but also looking at the EV-150 for the trolling modes. Running a single 8212 and have not heard great things about the Garmin.

I installed the EV-200 with my Garmin 7612 and it works great. I would have gotten the EV-150 but it wasn't released at that time...

At 10.2 CU IN. you are well within spec on the EV-150. You wont be happy with the SP110. Its a straight line a-b pilot and that's it.

It all comes down to the ram or rans capacity. The Ev-150 is good up to 14 CuIn. total

We have the EV 100 on our boat and it works great. Gotta believe its the same software as the EV150. For the price, really cant beat it

The EV-150 is basically an EV-200 without the solenoid switch or rudder reference sensor. It will power Type 1 reversing hydraulic pumps only. Inboard engines with mechanical steering will require the EV-200. The EV-100 uses the same algorithms and sensors as the EV-150 but can only run Type 0.5 pumps.

As a side note, I'm using the Seastar autopilot pump with my ev-200...works great and was a bit cheaper.

What does the typical Verado twin 300 with Merc pump in stern about 5' from steering cyl. Boat is a 34' CC. How do I determine the ram capacity?

Mercury makes their won steering ram for verados, you have to call to get the specs. its a PITA.

I have the Raymarine Evolution EV-200 AP, the EV-150 did not exist back then or I would have bought it. The pilot hase been absolutely the best piece of marine electronics I have ever owned. Absolutely awesome. I do things with my boat now that I just would not have done before because it would just be too tiring, the Raymarine AP is the best helmsman you will ever have.

I routinely do 12 hour days on the boat (Parker 2520) many times solo. The work load that the autopilot carries really can not be exaggerated. If you have the AP mated with a chart plotter and are competent with building routes, saving tracks etc. there are really very few times that the pilot will not be engaged.

I recently did a 12 hour fishing day, engine ran for 7 hours, autopilot had the helm 6 hours and 50 minutes of the day.

I also have the wireless remote, some might say overkill on a 25 foot boat but I find it very handy trolling without a cockpit helm station.

I have been watching the EV-150 since it came out and really like it. I think it will work great on my Cape Horn 24xs. Hoping to see a sale like Raymarine had last spring.

Mercury informed me the steering RAM capacity for the Verado 350 is 10.565 cubic inches.

I was thinking the Raymarine EV-150 would work with the same type 1 pump as in the EV-200

If installing an autopilot does this capacity need to be multiplied by the number of engines to figure what size unit is required?

The number of engines doesn't matter directly. The number of steering rams does. If you have more than one steering ram, then you have to see if they are hooked up in series or parallel. If they are parallel, then you choose your pump based on the combined capacity of both rams. If they are hooked up in series, then you only need to consider a single ram's capacity.

If you have the Verado Power steering system, your going to need the system made for the Verado system. Its a Raymarine kit.
