Re: Autopilot PS 34

Raymarine X5 wheel pilot, works pretty well. John is right though, it is noisy sometimes. Kept a course reasonably well this summer on a downwind run on Chesapeake. Buoy data confirmed winds above 30 kts, but it was a dead downwind run and waves were square to stern. Still impressed though, even if I did helm through the strongest winds, for fear of broaching.
