I would rather have a Hydrovane, than any of the servo pendulum / lines into the cockpit wrapped around the wheel systems. I am sure they work fine, lots of torque to turn the wheel etc. But I think if you are serious about a self steering unit, you owe it to yourself to consider the advantage of having a backup steering system independent of what your boat came with. I personally went and looked at as many different systems, installed on various boats. To me the hands down winner is the Hydrovane. If saving money is your deciding factor, go for the bulk rate.

Why, why, why?
