Autopilot Installation for Scout 245 XSF Power Boat
Scout 245 XSF Power boat with Yamaha 300 HP
Work Requested: I have a Scout 245 XSF with a Yamaha 300 outboard and I would like to add an autopilot. I currently have a Raymarine E125 Hybrid Touch chartplotter with sonar that I want to interface with as well. I looked at my steering and I have a Seastar part #HC5358. I am looking at the Raymarine Evolution series of Autopilots and based on what I have am leaning towards the Raymarine EV-200 Hydraulic Pack, Product Number: T70157.
