I would appreciate opinions about the performance of the S1.
Thanks!
It would help if you said what boat you had and whether it was tiller or wheel steering. If it has wheel steering, how many turns is it to go from lock-to-lock?

The S1 is only rated for up to a specific displacement range. Also, some wheel steering systems take too many turns lock-to-lock for it to be effective.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
