Re: Smart Pilot Raymarine X5 Wheel Pilot

Ohhh-kayyy! I have commissioned my wheel pilot and I am ready to buy it a diamond ring. It works very well and it's better-modulated than the one I have on my old boat.

Spent the day out sailing. I can sit where I want to, even up on the bow. "Otto" does a fine job of keeping Halcyon on course, on all points of sail. It can't take care of a change in the wind, though - but it held its own in light winds and heavy gusts, under sail and under power. And it is wonderful to be able to use the awning I've only used at anchor, as shade when I'm out under sail.
