Re: Tiller Pilot Choices - Simrad TP30-32
My boat originally had a Simrad TP-30 tiller pilot. Apparently it was stolen before I bought it. I am thinking of replacing it with a TP32. Anyone have an opinion of these either way?
The guy in the video below has an opinion....and I gotta say, I love this video.
PUT THIS ON JAMES THREAD
AWESOME BOAT, AWESOME SAILS dumbass tack...and Im sorry...autopilots arent to be used to tack when its so damn easy to do so oneself
honestly I can see why threads like james start
number 1 rule of tacking is to never start hauling in the new jib sheet unless the other one is clear and the sail is clear
what a fool
nice racing outfit too btw...
no tiller pilot is going to save this guy
ps tenoch in regards to the tp32 they are similar to the raymarine I used extensively to cruise on...they are decent last long, just cover up in bad weather but DONT SEAL as humidity will condese inside and damage more
to tack I simply put pilot on standby
I also didnt use the plus or minus 10 degree features a lot only when motoring..that is the best way to overload an otherwise simple tiller pilot
if you are interested Im a great fan of the cylindrical looking older rayhteon pilots...that have the interface separate and not combined
my dad one had one connected to a joystick to sail his columbia challenger on a gimballed paraplegic chair....
it was extremely good at tacking too
