I’ll pass along your greetings.
We tried the Hydrovane in SF Bay Sunday for the first time. It took a little tuning to get familiar with sensitivity and response. When settled in, the experience was amazing. We literally set course under the Bay Bridge for Sausalito and crossed the slot (winds focused by the Golden Gate Bridge) without a single adjustment. Pinning the rudder literally extended the keel, the boat picked up at least a knot or two. Even getting on beam ends, the vane held a steady course. Amazing. Silent command. Worth every nickel.
