IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL SHORT HANDED, LAZY AND WISE CRUISING SAILORS CONSIDERING TO BUY WINDVANE STEERING
I am not his business associate, I am not a relative or family, I have never seen the man in real life and I have no shares in his company.
But in the last eight years I sailed with my wife exactly 9195 nautical miles using the Windpilot Pacific Plus (with the auxiliary rudder) on our Hallberg Rassy 38. It is a perfect machine and it never disappointed us. In 2013 there was a minor problem, solved in 5 minutes after consulting the builder. Last month we had another small issue (vibrating sound) and consulted the builder again. Free of charge he has sent us spare-parts to solve the problem which was vanished within an hour after replacing the parts.
I cannot speak for other self-steering systems. I only know of the Windpilot. It is strong, easy to use, reliable and long lasting. If you are in doubt to purchase an Windpilot on your boat, you are free to contact us.
Peter Foerthmann, thanks for selling us a good product. There is a lot of Mickey Mouse stuff on the yachting market, but your windvane is really good!
