We got the replacement autopilot parts, installed them with the couple of changes Ben Brown recommended and took EV over to the turning basin to try it out. No good. The compass just spins around and the pilot won’t hold a course at all. I’m at my wit’s end. Again with the tears. Despite my conciliatory email to Ben Brown of Schafer and Brown, he sent us yet another kiss off email and told us he was too busy to help us. What a major jerk! The other Raymarine person is on his way to the Miami boat show. I called the Caribbean rep who was very sympathetic but said he doesn’t have anyone else, and he’s calling tech support for us to see if they can advise on getting it working.
I could just scream. Why? Why? Why?
