Re: Self steering dilemma
Come to think of it, isn't there a less expensive option than Hydravane ? Yes I know they are very good indeed and for a round the world voyager probably the best option but with your boat @ 35' and working on the Pacific voyage ?
My old 28'er had a Plastimo which was more than adequate for what we needed and a damn sight cheaper than Hydravane.
btw ... has anyone any concerns about mounting a wind vane under solar array ? The top of the vane is getting close to the frame and I wonder whether or not air flow might be disturbed.
