Re: Auto Helm for CS 36

Ideally a below deck unit is best. However we've been sailing with an Raymarine S1-G wheel pilot for the last six years and it steers the 36T without issue.

I figured it would fail in the first year, these boats weigh over 19k loaded for sailing, then I would add the below deck drive. I bought the Wheel Drive kit because it can act as a core pack for a below deck and essentially the wheel drive part is free...
