    Hey guys...

    Came across a used Simrad Autopilot package.....seller looking for $900. .in excellent condition...package includes;

    1. Simrad AP24 Autopilot control head unit
    2. Simrad AC12 Autopilot computer
    3. Simrad RC42 Compass
    4. Simnet AT10 & Joiner (with NMEA 0183 cables and block)
    does not include the Pump or rudder indicator...

    I have a 28’ Seaworthy (BHM) 370 Yanmar diesel with Seastsar steering...no hydroslave.

    Question for the group;

    1. Would this be compatible for my boat
    2. Price seems reasonable...but would like to hear from other members here.

    Thanks!

    Yes that would work for your boat. You would need to purchase a pump and a rudder angle indicator for it to work. I've had the AP24 on my current boat and the boat before, it's a great unit.

    I have Hydroslave steering on both boats, so can't help you there.

    I have a solenoid valve block that is controlled by the autopilot computer. This was my last boat, but the plumbing is the same.
