Re: Self steering dilemma

A few hours of battery charging on passage for the AP isn't going to break the bank.

As far as spares go...good to check ebay and the garage, boater sales type events. Never know what you'll find. Those spare's going to be worth gold up in de islands!

I did at one time have a tow generator, but got rid of it last year, 360 watts of solar and the wind generator are plenty. We rarely start the engine for battery charging purposes.
