Re: Self steering dilemma
One of each, waiter. If you would be so kind.
I've only been offshore in other people's boats, never my own. Fair bit of coastal in our boat(s) but not offshore passage making. Coastal the AP just seems to make sense.
Long term, if we didn't already have a Hydrovane I'm not sure I'd get one but fitted with Tiller Pilot option it is nice to have a back up rudder. I am intent on moving our HV off centre to allow for platform. HV themselves say this will not effect performance.
