Wind vane steering for Bruce Roberts 43

Can anyone recommend a type of wind vane self steering system that would work well on my long keeled Steel Bruce Roberts 43. I like the idea of the Windpilot Pacific Plus and would be pleased to hear from anyone who has this fitted to my hull form.

You need a big ass wind vane, maybe the Hydrovane. Not for the power but it's overall size.

Thanks Ecos,
I had a Hydrovane on my BR 34 which worked well however I didn't think they went up to my current boat size. I now see they do so I've sent them an enquiry.
