I'm gonna weigh in here...like Tim said, autopilots are gems.

I'll warn you of some potential awkward moments that may (or may not have) happened to a...ummm...friend.

When on a charter boat (a cat, we'll say), where others' hatch is close to yours....and all retire to bed at night...imagine the awkwardness of looking over and having eye contact with your boat's captain...who also has his head out the hatch for the same reason.

When out sailing, thinking incorrectly that you are far enough out of traffic...and a fast, big boat passes you with 4 people on the rail with binocs in hand...and it's too late to do anything about it....hoping you don't know them from racing.
