Re: choosing an autopilot for Grampian 30
Get one rated for a 40 footer what ever you do. They cost more but will work in all conditions. Every time I deliver a boat with an auto helm rated for the size of the boat, the belt slips in weather or if it's a tiller it works too much. I up graded or over sized a couple of boat's I regularly deliver and fixed the problem. My 28 sloop has a tiller auto helm from a Cal 36. Rather than go zeeeeeem zooooooooom zeeeeeem zooooom, it goes zit............zup.
