Frequently Asked Questions - Using and troubleshooting your self steering
Do you have experience of these units fitted to Mini650?
I am in the UK , North Essex, if you think your product would be suitable are there any localy I could inspect?
The mini 650 type of boat has the ability to plane.
This allows for big changes in speed with small wind speed increase, and that gives a big change in apparent wind direction.
This leads to a zig-zag course which is very unsatisfying.
This is why a windvane self steering system is not recommended for this type of boat.
