There's all kinds of AP's for both wheel and tiller steering. If you're under 32, suggest something that attaches above deck, as below deck is more expensive, and if you have to get at it, it's more difficult, like on a Catalina 30 and several others, you have to take off panels etc to work on it. Above deck, you got a motor and a belt, simple. Autohelm and Navicon or Navicom make very dependable systems, and look at the remote with the digital read-out. Great if single handing, punch in the degrees of tack, enter and there it goes.

The only thing wrong with the Navi-whatever, is that it's made in England. If you're not from England, you won't know what the hell they're talking about in the instruction manual.

Just checking in.
Where ya'll keep'n the wimmin 'round here?
