Re: AutoPilots

Crossing the Atlantic single handed you need belt and braces on the self steering.

I would go with a Hydrovane wind vane which gives you an emergency rudder as well CLICKY

Plus an Electric Autopilot one that is often ignored is the CPT wheel pilot which is possibly The only currently available wheel pilot that can handle 40 ft + boats. CLICKY2

Here is a bit on self steering CLICKY 3
