Good Old Boat

He must have an awesome autohelm on this boat. Mine is compass only.

Looked like a standard Raymarine ST1000/2000 to me... good sail trim and a friendly keel can take a lot of the strain...

Re: Good Old Boat

Yep, it's a Morgan 30. If you click on the top of these video's, it takes you to the actually full size youtube video where it tells you all this stuff.

It's a 1969 Morgan 30 so the dude went with the Midnight Cowboy Theme since it came out at about the same time.

I'm thinking he might have the wind option also on his standard tiller autohelm rather than just the compass select.

Whatever it's a nice video, and the guy has a few more there on youtube. His boat is called Whimsy since he bought it on a Whim. I think he's up to Whimsy II already
