Autopilot for Windvane Compass Steering (lead time is currently 5 weeks)
Let the windvane's water paddle provide the power to steer your boat to a constant compass course. Includes standard Pelagic Autopilot electronics, windvane actuator, bracket(s) and/or cable for connecting the autopilot to the windvane. A standard attachment kit for Scanmar's Monitor windvane is available. Please contact us regarding other windvane types as installations can vary.
Turns the windvane into a constant course steering device.
Power use is reduced by eight to ten times compared to a direct rudder drive autopilot.
The electronics package is the same as our tiller drive so having both methods is an option, providing an additional level of redundancy.
A standard kit is available for the Monitor. Other supported models include Aries, Cape Horn and Windpilot Pacific. Contact us regarding yours.
Hydrovane is supported with our standard tiller system.
