Safe Helm

Safe Helm

Postby mikek » Thu Oct 05, 2017 9:56 am

I'm going to be installing a 711c/ob this winter and trying to decided if I need the fps8 to go with it. It's only going on a single outboard so power assist isn't needed. My question is about the safe helm feature.

I had a Simrad AP24 on my previous boat. If I had to quickly dodge a crab pot or another object all I did was turn the wheel. The ap wouldn't prevent the boat from a quick course change and would continue on course. Does the 711c/ob operate the same way? Does it prevent me from quickly turning the boat? I don't like having to hit the "dodge" button to avoid and obstacle. Thanks.

You should be able to operate it just like your AP24 as long as you have hydraulic steering.
