Mister Vees performance against weather helm?
I have a West Wight Potter 19. When sailing in any wind, but especially downwind in 15 knots and up winds, she has considerable weather helm.
Have your customers deployed Mister Vee on similar boats? Are they happy?
Thanks in advance
Not many systems have been set up on this kind of small boat.
I suspect that counteracting weather helm on a running course on a very small boat is not that easy for any self steering system.
On a windward course nothing dangerous happens when the set course is lost for a bit but on a small boat that may give a swift gype, which is potentially dangerous.
I think the only thing that can be done if this happens is to change to a an off wind course and gybing every now and then.
