I am likely purchasing
with a Raymarine
pilot. Does anyone have experience with this unit?
displaces 16,000# which is the top limit of the pilot per Raymarine
. But Raymarine also says that one should figure the boat's displacement
at design weight plus 20% when choosing an autopilot
. So, per Raymarine, the boat is "under auto piloted".
I'm sure that the ST6002 will be fine for most conditions. But I'm thinking, particularly as I sail off shore, single
handing, with some frequency, I should be budgeting for a serious below deck
auto pilot or perhaps for a wind vane
for when it blows and the ST6002 when there is light wind
or when motoring.
Your thoughts are appreciated.
