[CA11] 100 series autopilot vs SG

My new-to me boat is a Saga 43, a 20,000 pound boat. My old boat is a Sabre 34, an old and much lighter boat, around 12,000 pounds. I'm also looking to sell the Sabre.

The Sabre has an S3 autopilot computer, driving a wheel pilot.

The Saga has a Series 100 computer, driving a Type II Long actuator.

Both have a ST6000 series controller (not sure which specific ones).

When I was at the Annapolis boat show, I spoke to the rep, and he was amazed that the Series 100 was still running on a boat this heavy.

So my question. I believe the Series 100 is original to the Saga (1998), and the S3 is much newer. Is the S3 sufficiently better than the Series 100 that I should swap the units? The Sabre selling price won't notice the difference, and we will be keeping the Saga for many years and many miles.

Thanks for any thoughts,
