Windvane Steering Necessary for Long Ocean Passages?

I am considering an Ohlson 38,as one of many boats on a short list. I read Hendersons book along time ago ,I think he had one and thought it a nice boat if Im thinking of the right guy. How did it sail?With a crew of six you probally didnt have to steer more than two hours. I think a wind vane is neccessary equipment for any boat going offshore, with an autopilot for motoring.-thomas
