I have a monitor, and love it very much. On my most recent trip 3k miles to Hawaii it did 99.9 % of the steering. In all points of sail from dead down wind to beating. I however use the big air blade and found it usefull down to 3Kts of wind (I hope Steve was kidding on the above 12Kts as with the exception of a couple of days of 45+ knot storm we rarely saw over 10Kts on the way over. In our cruise, it was invaluable. I agree with Steve the only gear on board I appreciated more was my foulies.

Scanmar is also a great bunch of people to work with!

It is a Great piece of gear!!! it costs $$$ but It is the only additional gear item I list as required!
