I hear you on the autopilot! This boat has a cetek autopilot that is really old and doesn't work. I don't know why yet but I'm taking it out and installing a new autopilot with a separate hydraulic ram. I don't have a synchronizer either. That may be an addition down the road. For the next two years or so we will be in the delta and SF bay and following seas won't be much of a problem. Before we go under the golden gate we'll work on new instruments, cleaning fuel tanks, paint and a host of other maintenance to make us safe and look good. When we finally do get cut loose we plan to cruise down to Mexico and up to Alaska.

Hey Steve, welcome back. We'll get together soon and show you the boat. We have a lot of work to do but we really like the bones on this boat. How was the Sea this year?
