Which product to choose
I have a Cal 25 and would like to purchase self steering to be combined with a center mounted outboard engine.
Is the Mr. Vane sufficient and does the mounting kit come with the turning blocks I need to complete the system?
From pictures available on the internet it seems that most cal 25s have an outboard engine in a cut-out in the transom.
That allow for the use of a standard length outboard engine which would leave too little space for any windvane self steering system, including Mr. Vane.
Mr. Vane was designed to be used in combination with a centrally mounted outboard engine on a lifting outboard bracket.
This generally requires a long tail or extra long tail outboard engine.
It may be possible to fit Y&B around the outboard engine, but that would mean that the outboard can no longer be tilted up during sailing.
