Pilots up and Running!

So after two days of trying to get out and calibrate the autopilots, we finally got a morning of nice quiet winds and seas.  I went out at 7am, did the turns, the heading alignment and the autolearn and everything went perfectly.  The Raymarine tech here is brilliant.  He saw right away that since my rudder reference is mounted “upside down”, that the wiring isn’t traditional following the colour scheme.  Thanks very much to Raymarine for making this happen.  I’m really happy the problem was a simple installation issue.  I love my pilots….:-)  Now just to add some massive flotation volume to the boat and we’re off to England next weekend for the Fastnet!
