Re: Amuse me, sailing small boat offshore.

Check out trans pac and pac cup, lots of tiny boats using auto pilot, I would't waste 6k on a vane for a 25 day trip. You can also use sheet to tiller but you must have your trim spot on for it to work. Maybe a good set of twin 90 steering sails would work. Goodle sailiing super shrimp for a free download, one of the best sailing books ever written. Also look to the solo sailors society, lots of good info.
