Re: Self steering dilemma
Interesting point re power consumption. I guess it also comes down to just how well balanced the boat is.
That is a really important point. Our ST 4000 tiller pilot seems to only sip power but our medium-heavy cruiser type boat tracks well and sail balance is easy to achieve. Might be different in a lighter boat.
