The Comnav primary autopilotpump had 1800 hrs on it and was now replaced with a refurbished sparepump.
This Canadian autopilot system (used among others by the Canadian Coastguard) has served Dora Mac beautifully during our period of ownership. Randal and Ruth did have some problems initially during their ownership with pumps wearing out prematurely. After faultsearch Randal found out the pump was calibrated in a wrong way acting to fast with only 8 seconds between the two endpositions . The refurbished pump we installed now we calibrated to 14 seconds between endpositions (14-15 sec recommended by Comnav tech support).
