Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Thanks - good advice. Have the raymarine with the big arm. Wish. I got the nke. Would you suggest mix or two of the same?
Have had a monitor and a Fleming on prior boats. Actually liked the Fleming better. But agree if the boat's hull speed is >8kts vanes don't work as well as A.P.s especially down wind in seas. Amazing how in the last couple of years A.P. performance has improved.what size nke do you have?
Find in difficult situations going apparent wind rather then course sometimes makes it work less.
