It is now March 2020 and I think it has taken us three months to recover from our 14-day winter cruise through the Gulf Islands in December 2019. Maybe we are getting soft but the cold and the wet really wore us down this year. After the last 3 years of going to balmy warmth of Hawaii for a winter b...
In our earlier post in 2008 we discussed the Raymarine 4000 Tiller pilot that we installed before we left in 2006 on our trip. As a backup we also purchased another brand new one which we kept installed in a box.
