If gusts and shifts make it impossible to use a tiller pilot... Wouldn't they also make it pretty much impossible to sail...? You, sir, must have some of the craziest wind conditions on the planet....

If you want to see through something, it usually needs to be made of a see-thru material. Otherwise it can be hard to see through.

If you have the rig tuned correctly for the conditions (gusty, steady, whatever) the boat should not round up in the puffs. It will heel more, but should hold its course with some helm correction.
