There are so many choices for auto helms , simrad, autohelm raymarine etc. Like to get some feed back on different systems ..also how each works and benefits, e.g gear driven , hydraulic piston. currently using a new simrad 25 on bristol 41.1 but looking a several used boats and want to know how to evaluate quality and dependability on system. mostly I use boat course only and do not have it adjusting to wind direction shifts.

W-H Autopilot. The model P-3 would be OK for a Bristol 41, with a hydraulic RAM.

IMHO, best autopilot on the market, best service-after-sale, tech support, etc. The Pac NW fishing fleet swears by them.

I love mine, after 5 years.

Lots of posts on this autopilot; search SailNet, Cruisers Forum, and the SSCA Board.
