    Unhappy Raymarine X-5 Tiller Pilot

    Check out Defender Industries. They're offering the X-5 for $667 + shipping. It's the lowest price I've seen. <defender.com>

    Defender's $667 is without the control head, which you'll need. But it's still a great deal at $922 with the control head. (I paid more than that too Pat.)

    Sub, this is your primary piece of gear for singlehanding. Even if you can find a used one in pristine condition (and I haven't seen any used X-5's), it won't be enough cheaper than these prices to make up for not having a new unit with a warranty.

    IMHO of course.

    Default Bought a brand new one

    Thanks All for the advice! I decided to buy a new one locally at West Marine. Even got the extended warranty for the unfortunate accidents. Now, I just have to install it. Looking forward to joining you guys downwind and doing headsail changes now.

    For those who have a remote, how do you like it?

    For those who don't have a remote, what's the contingency plan when being dragged through the water?
