Re: Self steering dilemma

Buy a couple of cheap spares for your st 4000 on ebay etc. Down wind you might think of a little less mainsail...easier on the autopilot. If you were going to be out longer and for greater distances then the windvane is the way to go.

sailing up the Qld coast behind the barrier reef has got to be one of the worlds greatest sails, flat waters, winds aft the beam and a decent anchorage every 50 to 60 miles...
On the way back the reach from Vanuatu to Bundy is another dreamy passage...don't forget to call into Chesterfield reef on the way home...
