I have the Simrad the Bud mentioned and as a single-hander, I would never be without it. I do have both solar panels and a KISS wind generator, so power is not an issue. I also have a windvane, but still am not as comfortable with it. I can even use the Simrad to navigate through the lobster traps in the Florida Keys. This past Spring, on my trip to the Bahamas, I touched the Simrad two or three times on the Gulfstream crossing, each way, and crossing the Banks, I set it and didn't move it until I got to the "Window". Again, I wouldn't sail without it!

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!

See the full list here!
