A friend put an Autohelm
on his Morgan
OI 41, a center cockpit
hydraulically steered boat. He said it worked well, I didn't get a chance to see it in action before he left for Mexico
. A Hydrovane
should also work as it is the same type of self steering
. Neither connects to the main rudder
, each steers its own aux. rudder
, one by adjusting a trim tab on the aux. rudder, the other directly turning its semi-balanced rudder.
I will tell you how the Hydrovane
works, if I ever get around to installing it.
Scanmar sells both Monitor and Autohelm
Self Steering - Hydrovane Selfsteer
Scanmar also sells the Saye's rig which they say works on your style boat.
