Raymarine issues safety recall

MERRIMACK, N.H. — Raymarine has initiated a voluntary recall of the Raymarine SPX5 Sport Drive Pilot, according to an alert from the company. Raymarine said it has identified a potential component problem with the device, which it has sold since February.

As a result of the problem, the device’s mechanical clutch assembly may fail, causing the steering of the vessel to lock in one direction, Raymarine said.

Customers should stop using the products immediately and arrange de-installation and return to the retailer/dealer where it was purchased. The retailer/dealer will arrange for a replacement or, if preferred, a refund, according to Raymarine.
