Re: Self steering dilemma

Wasn't worrying about the AP rather rudder failure.when prepping for many races or joining fleet sails need to demonstrate that you have a emergency rudder.? Do you carry one. Thanks
Surprisingly find even fin keel boats tract well enough if balanced to use brake and go below for short stints. Been trying to spec emergency rudder set. May be worth the extra bucks for a hydrovane
