Every sailboat underway requires some form of auto-steering for the short-handed boat crew to be released from steering every minute during the voyage. The electronic pilots used for this purpose are the common choice for the coastal cruising and weekend voyages. The intention of Peter Forthmann, the author of the present title, was to explain all important aspects of the automatic steering together with the associated electronic equipment, and fill in the huge gap existing there in the marine literature.

There has been nothing like this book available on the marine literature market for decades. The readers of the book have found the content really excellent and informative. The information and materials selected by the author for the inclusion in his work, will definitely provide all interested readers with the deep technical understanding of the most important things, such as the adjustable power arms and bevel gears for the yaw damping.

Note that all information contained has been presented in a very easy-to-follow manner making the volume so popular among the readers of different categories and practical experience - it will be equally useful to all of them. One of the best sources covering the wind-steering and auto-piloting.
