  1. Canvasback is now at Birds Eye Cove Marina in Maple Bay. Appears to be in reasonable shape....from a distance anyway.
  2. I have had a Raymarine X5 (not the Gran Prix version) on my Olson 30 for about 7 years now. It has worked flawlessly over that time. I read about Raymarine tiller pilots that pack it in regularly, Webb Chiles included. One thing you need to do with these pilots is put a boot over the ram (I used a Ford shock absorber boot) from day one. This stops salt water from migrating into the cylinder which leads to premature failure. I have never figured out why Raymarine doesn't include a boot as standard equipment...seems a no-brainer.
