I just bought on craigslist and am working with the manufacturer to install...a Sailomat 601. Looks like it wont be a problem.

wind vane vs. electronic

Postby sn2crz » Mon Apr 02, 2007 10:20 pm

I have an Auto pilot 6000 that functions quite well, the previos owners cruised Mexico and on to New Zealand with only this auto pilot (plus spares). Installation of a wind vane will require modification of the boomkin. I plan to cruise a similar route and beyond, is a wind vane something I should be concidering more closly or should I bolster the electronic auto pilot (or replace new).

Hello,

I haven't done any cruising yet, so I can't comment based on direct experience...but everything I've read says a windvane steering mechanism is potentially the most important piece of gear on a cruising boat. While an electric auto pilot might work quite well on short cruises, using one for 5 to 15 days straight 24 hours a day is an entirely different matter. The problem being if the auto pilot fails, someone is hand steering.

If your plans are for short trips between ports, then the auto pilot would likley be fine, but if you're planning for transatlantic or pacific crossings, etc then I don't think you can safely be without one.
Thanks,
