Pelagic Autopilot Compact Below Deck System (lead time currently 3 weeks)
This system combines the Pelagic Heavy Duty Electronics package with the Pelagic Compact Hydraulic Linear Actuator. Suitable for boats up to 45 feet (13.5m), its a great replacement for underpowered wheel pilots. Its small footprint and integrated design provides the power and reliability of a hydraulic system without external hoses and reservoirs. Ideal for boats where below decks space is limited.
Designed for ease of installation, the unit is supplied with a quick release mount, tiller bolt (for attaching to quadrant or similar) and fitting kit.
The unit includes the rudder reference/feedback unit that mounts directly onto the actuator.
