Two autopilots,a spare brain and control panel. Pay attention to the response setting on your autopilot to save amps. Trimmed correctly there is no lee helm. If you have a few extra dollars/pounds fit the autopilot with a wind option which gives you the best of all worlds. I am still waiting to see my first SM with a wind vane. there must be a reason.
Good luck.

Has any SM owner fitted a windvane for ocean passages? If so what make?
I am considering making this addition before my next passage but have heard some reports that certain boats do not respond well to either Hydrvane or Monitor systems. Thoughts?
