Mike,

I do not advise using a tillerpilot for anything more than keeping a boat on course, and making small course changes. If you try to use the tillerpilot to tack, or make extreme course changes, you will soon find the pilot worn out, overheated, and with other possible failures. If you want to make a sudden course change, or tack, just release the pilot, make the change, then connect the pilot again. Don't ask the pilot to do something it is not capable of easily doing.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
