    Philippe, nice videos.
    You'll like the Pelagic Autopilot, really works well and the remote control is super handy. I can gybe from the foredeck using the remote while I change the spinnaker pole.

    I like that mounting Bob.
    I have old Signet gauges that are dead so need to put a piece of wood or G10 to fill those holes and will just mount the control on the new plate.
