Re: Right tiller pilot for a 1996 Hunter 26
Simrad TP10 - nothing fancy, self-contained, simple to operate, designed for exactly your sort of application. It will follow a compass course, tack on command, and has some ability to compensate for sea-state effects. About $400.
I have an earlier version on my Cal 227. The only trouble it's ever given me is when the power plug needed tightening (not really a problem with the unit, per se).
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
