Which tiller pilot?

Which Tiller Auto pilot do you like?

I have 36 foot LOD sloop built by Gotfreid with a Herreshoff plan called Diddikai. She is made of wood and her displacement is 18,000 LBS.

Thanks

Re: Which tiller pilot?

What I have is a Raymarine SPX-5 GP, which is rated for about 16,000#. It has served me very well on my 30,000# Rafiki over a number of years (seasonal sailing). But I mostly use it when winds and seas are gentle. Mostly it gets used when we’re motoring. I have an Aries which steers us most of the time.

But what I like (and will buy if/when the Ray packs it in) is this:
