Raymarine issues recall of Sport Drive Pilot

Publish date:

Raymarine issued a voluntary recall of its SPX5 Sport Drive Pilot because of a potential component problem with those models sold between February and July 2009.

Raymarine says the mechanical clutch assembly on these products could fail, causing the steering of the vessel to lock in one direction, with a possible risk to the safety of the vessel and crew.

The company is advising customers to stop using the products immediately and arrange de-installation and return to the retailer/dealer where it was purchased. The retailer or dealer will arrange for a replacement or a refund.

The affected products are the SPX 5 Sport Drive Pilot and control head, E12206, and the SPX 5 Sport Drive Pilot, pilot only, E12132. No other products are affected by this recall.
