Re: How to Proceed...
For safety you really need a tillerpilot. This will cut down the fatigue dramatically.
Hand steering for long passages is very tiring. Tired people make bad decisions.
Fitting is simple and the boat does not need to come out.
When you head down the Thorny path you will need a spare for safety, two spares would not be overkill.
