Overnight we motored over a restless, windless ocean. Under some cloud but with a life-affirming full moon.
Yesterday I finally finished the new autopilot installation, rivetting the power unit bracket to the main steering pedestal. And now, it works a treat. This CPT autopilot is so simple, absolutely silent and ampere-anorexic. I like it very much.
The breeze returned just after sunrise, as it does every day. Under poled out yankee and single reefed main the CPT is working a treat. I do not wish to demean Mr Aries, but he would not enjoy these light following winds and conflicting cross swells.
