ROY,<br>FIRST OF ALL I AM ENVIOUS OF YOUR TIME IN
THE MED, BUT MY DAY IS COMING! THE GYRO FEATURE AS
JEAN-JACQUES FROM AMEL DESCRIBED IT WORKS THROUGH
SOPHISTICATED MICROPROCESSORS AND MUCH MORE EFFICIENT ELECTRIC
MOTORS AT THE QUADRANT RESULTING IN SMOOTH ALMOST
EFFORTLESS TRACKING DOWN WIND. AS I STATED IN A PRIOR
MESSAGE MY LOCAL BOAT'S AUTOHELM 6000 WHILE ALSO ON THE
QUADRANT IS NO WHERE AS EFFICIENT, NOR CAPABLE OF HOLDING
A DOWNWIND COURSE THAN THIS NEW VERSION. IT DOESN'T
EVEN SOUND LIKE THE NEW ONE! IT GRUNTS, SCREAMS ALMOST
UNDER LOAD, EVEN AFTER I HAVE TRIMMED ALL SAILS. ON THE
SM I DO HAVE A BACK UP PILOT ON THE WHEEL,
CHAIN/GEAR DRIVEN, BUT HAVE YET TO USE IT. I SUGGEST YOU
TALK WITH AN AUTOHELM DEALER ABOUT
CONVERETING.<br>ENJOY YOUR SAILING!<br>JOHN FOLINO
