We have been meaning to write you for some time now.
We just returned from a 3 week trip to Kauai from Honolulu on our C&C 40 tall rig deep keel sailboat.
The Hydrovane drove the boat flawlessly downwind in 15 kts of breeze and a 115 AWA.
The Kauai Channel is notorious for being extremely rough especially off Kaena Point.
We had a reef in the Main and our 80% get home jib

It drove up on the puffs and then back down the way I would have been driving the boat!
We were amazed at how well he was driving!
Thank you for your GREAT product!
We are really happy to have him as our third crew member!
He did a great job!
