Question Autohelm

I recently purchased a 1971, Far East. Mariner Ketch 32ft. Need information on an autohelm that would be easily adaptable for this sailboat.

Is it wheel or tiller steered?? That will change your options. Also, what is the displacement of the boat. That is also a factor in what units will be available to you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Take a look at the above site. It is the best place for info on the Mariner ketches.
