Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: More dumb questions - Autopilot options, pros and cons
Do you know anybody, say within 20 miles or so of Billerica that could help me install one. I know a guy up in Hudson, NH that can do most anything, maybe I can get him to give me a hand.
If I buy one now it will snow the next day and all winter, so I'll probably get one over the winter, along with a real radio and 8' antena, etc. and when the weather breaks early spring, do it up. Does it help if the boat is in the water.

John, you’re only going this way one time, so you might as well enjoy it with an autopilot, just dedicate one of those SS checks to the autopilot.
The autopilot will probably not handle some of the more sever winds that you go out in and everybody else is sitting at home. What it will do is give time to get back to helm so that you can whip the steering around to correct your course. In normal conditions with winds up to 15 to 20 mph it should do a fair job.
