    I am looking to replace the ST4000 Autopilot (Wheel) to an Raymarine Evolution with Line Drive on a Bavaria 38 (2005). Is there anyone who has one installed and can give me ideas for the installation of the line drive? It must be a sturdy con structure as there will be some forces.

    Hello Sten

    Some years ago I had a similar modification done on my B32, replacing the wheel pilot with the electric ram system.  More recently I’ve upgraded the  original ST4000 control head with the Evolution system which is absolutely superb.  To mount the electric ram I had a marine ply mounting plate glassed in to the rear hull,  in the space aft of the rear cabin.  This was done by a professional GRP engineer to ensure that the ram lined up with the steering quadrant on the rudder stock.  It would be possible to DIY if you think you have the necessary skills!

    Hope this helps…
