Low Cost Autopilot

Last year I finished building and testing a DIY autopilot built from Arduino microcontrollers. It steers our 48' schooner quite well. It uses a Raymarine electric motor, but another boat has used a gear operated quadrant motor and anotherboat uses a hydraulic steering system.  For a couple of hundred dollars you can build one, especially if You just want it to steer a course.

Let me know if anyone is interested.  murfmv@gmail.com
