autopilot?
 
hopefully not asking an all too common question (but I searched here and didn't find much)
?does anyone know of a good source of info. re. autopilot units for smaller boats (I have a Caliber '28/has a wheel). I don't really trust my 4 year old's ability to hold a course (joking... although truth be told she's not bad at the helm) and my wheel-tensioner is good for 30 seconds before the course alters. I mostly single-hand and in addition to always tethering when out of cockpit I think an autopilot is a must. Surprisingly couldn't find any great reviews/comparisons when I googled. Thanks/

You need a Wheel Pilot and there is only one currently made.
