Re: Self steering dilemma
We have a Raymarine below deck with CPT wheel pilot as back-up. The below deck uses much more power than the CPT so we switch back and forth as needed.
Only reason I want a windvane is the possibility of a back-up steering system if we have a rudder failure. I would have to remove our davits and a 210watt solar panel to do it....not sure if its worth the loss.
