Re: Self steering dilemma
So I have an AP that has worked flawlessly since I got the boat. A friend has sailed for several years with the same model AP and not a hiccup. So I guess that also qualifies as "paid for itself in reliability" especially since it's way less expensive than a good quality wind pilot.
Wheel pilots IMHO are for small boats - once you get to 35ft or more they're not going to do the job and then a wind pilot would be better (even though I don't like them
Good for you, probably an exception, and maybe a more experienced sailor then most.
The CPT works fine, all about balance.
