Road trip to a boat wrecker

What you see here is our new to us ST2000+ Autohelm plus four turnbuckles. Not shown is our man over board bouy and a tiny anchor for our dinghy. All for a mere $140. Another boating couple and us went on a road trip for this place.

The autohelm does work, we ran it through its paces at the yard. What sucks now is waiting for our launch in spring to put her through sea trials.

Sounds like a place we have here in St. Augustine FL, Sailors Exchange. They have anything a sailor could want for penny's on the dollar. Seems like you did very well. You will have to let me know how it works once you launch. A tiller pilot is next on my list as well.

This one is good for a 10,000 pound boat, we are only 5200 pounds so we shouldn't over power it under normal sailing conditions.
