Hey nugent, we deal in a lot of the old Raymarine st5000 - st6000 type of kit and although old the parts and spares are still available there's a real market for these systems to people who can't stretch to a couple grand for a new system and of course a continuous stream of repairs.

ST5000 worth considering as it's a compact all-in-one control head and course computer. We've got one on magellan echo (9m cabin rib). All you need is a fluxgate compass and a drive unit. I'm assuming you have a drive unit already.

What boats this for? Gimme a shout By PM I'll sort you a deal we have a few systems in stock of varying type & price.

I've got one of these basic, nothing fancy but it does what it says on the tin & is easy to fit & compact.

S1000 is good value, about 750 with the wireless remote
