I have been experimenting with an obsolete QME self steering system which was given to me a few years ago by Rob Wooley.
My first attempts to use it in 12 to 15 knots of wind didn’t really work. The vane would not move the tiller – it tried to move it but there was too much friction or not enough power.
I have reduced the friction at the steering pulleys, and will try it again when the opportunity arrises.
In the meantime I wondered if anyone has experience of the QME being fitted to Atalanta’s?
Someone must have had one in the dim and distant past!
By the way I am not intending to go ocean sailing, I am just messing about.
