As long as we are posting pictures, here is a quick video I shot with a really obsolete digital camera, but it shows the TP10 holding a decent course in slop south of Charleston. Winds were 20-25 knots if my memory serves, and I was under double reef with a mule. That little solar panel (1.5Watts) was enough to keep me going for about 3 days running the TP10. At that time I only had a handheld VHF & GPS so no other power draw. I miss the simple life!




look at that tiller arm bend!
