    Hoping to get some solid leads as where I can get and have auto pilot installed onto my 2530. I have dual outboards. If anyone can suggest a reputable company for this service, that would be fantastic. Last 2 companies jerk me around with time and cost. Ugh.

    In addition, what area would you like the installation done? I like this outfit in SD.

    If you have the Armstrong platform, be sure to check whether the connecting plate bracket (connects both ends of the engine/gps piston rods in place) clears the platform. If it hits when the engine is raised, it will break or damage the seals in the piston tube....You know it is broken when the autopilot suddenly quits and the boat spins around.....:( The bracket is pretty thin metal and broke after hitting my platform (SeaStar hydraulic kit for the connection on my setup)...made a new one of thicker metal and ground the corners round to clear the platform..

    Have you asked West Coast Marine (Costa Mesa/Newport Beach) for a quote? They hook this stuff up every day and Nick Kelly has a pretty good reputation for making sure things go right....was there today and they were hooking one up for a new Parker owner......
