All voyaging sailboats require some form of automatic steering to relieve shorthanded crew from having to steer every minute underway. Electric autopilots are the usual choice for weekending and coastal cruising; voyagers prefer the greater reliability and lower power draw of windvane systems and there are hybrids that offer the best of both worlds. This book explains it all, filling a large gap in the marine how-to literature.
