Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Wind vane steering
Thanks for this info Dennistoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sounds like you had all bases covered with hydrovane, autopilot and spare autopilot drive.
I think I’m going to go against my instinct and not instal a wind vane. In large part this decision is one centered on cost. Not just the cost of the unit but more so the fact that our solar arch/davits overhang the transom. Ie no gap at all for the wind vane to protrude above the solar panel. As such I would also need to redesign the arch.
Instead I might beef up the solar we have currently and look for a spare rotary drive unit. I wonder if these are available as reconditioned items so will ask a repair Center here in the uk.
Many thanks again
