Auto Pilot? If you need Otto to steer for you while "otherwise engaged"; well you need more practice trimming your sails. Try "waiting" until you have her sailing with no steering inputs and then lock the helm with the brake or lash the tiller. Makes it more challenging and you also get to learn more about getting your boat to sail more efficiently.

You can do this without the "reward"; but it's more fun you have the goal.

That should work fine if you only need two minutes....

BTW, "Lock the helm", "lash the tiller", is that what the kids are calling it nowadays.

It's really difficult to stay on course when the autopilot is off, I'm at the wheel and my first mate is at the tiller.

Yo Keel, I don't need to take advise from you. Yep I know your mister perfect sailor that still uses a sextant. Bet its real hard to find your location in 3 miles of open water. Sorry to dissapoint you, but yep, I use otto, see..... We sail. We're not what you call puddle jumpers.
BTW, I have no idea what or where you sail; you have no idea what or where I sail either. But I got to tell you, your pissing me off with your condescending tone.

Dude(s), it was a joke; is Giu the only guy allowed to kid around here? (oh yeah, he's off p-shopping on his own forum now) But given the right wind it -can- be done (for much more than 2 mins); believe me on this...

Naa - it was a good point Keel. The problem is, if I wait to learn to sail that well before I get all nookied up - I'm gonna die.

LOL; start off slowly Smack... First on the hard, then in the slip, on a mooring, at the helm, with Otto at the helm, hove-to, on starboard tack, on port tack, at night, in the fog, etc...

Thanks Smackdaddy. what has you Gruntled?
The picture was taken in Venezuala. Previous owners were sailing it. Gives us something to look forward to. Presently "on the hard" - more boat humor.
