JIM,<br>YES I DID AND SINCE MY 40' YAWL IN
BUZZARDS BAY HAS AN AUTOHELM 6000 WITHOUT THE "GYRO" AND A
FULL KEEL, AND WANDERS AIMLESSLY OFF THE WIND! I CAN
ONLY SAY THAT THE SM WITH AUTOPILOT STEERS
EFFORTLESSLY DOWNWIND IN GOOD SIZED SWELLS (10' TO 15') WITH
20 APPARENT KTS ON A BROAD REACH. IN FACT THE AMP
METER BARELY MOVES SUGGESTING RELATIVELY LOW
EFFORT.<br>HAPPY NEW YEAR,<br>JOHN FOLINO
