I have the Ratcliffe vane-steering unit that was installed on Seacall by the original owner. A previous owner removed it ... looks like the second owner had it installed on the archive pic [homepage.mac.com
], so it was some time after then ... and a Raymarine tiller pilot replaced its function. I am happy with the tiller pilot and do not plan any long-distance passages, so it is sitting in my garage waiting for someone to appreciate it.
It seems that all of the parts are there, but I did not do a detailed inventory of the smaller attachments and fittings. It is in good condition, with very little surface staining on the SS parts. I can provide photos and do a better inventory if anyone is interested. I forgot to say that the original type-written manual is included.
I looked into the BCC forum, and a Ratcliffe unit was for sale for $500, which sounds reasonable for this one. If you are interested, drop me a line.
