This is a picture of of a self steering
unit that has come into my hands. Although it has Hydrovane
stamped all over it , it appears not to be a hydro vane, or if it is it is a very early one, '70's perhaps?
any way it look like it was meant to act directly on the wheel/ tiller, an above water self steering
with no seperate rudder
. Has anyone used a system like this? how effective are they.
Also attached is a picture of Rhosyn Mor, currently at the dock
awaiting a haulout.
As soon as this weather
in the Chesapeake turns and I can get a haul out
we are on the way down to Latin America, so a wind vane
would be nice ( We did 2400 miles hand steering
, not a pretty sight
