    Hi All,

    I am looking into getting a self steering vane. Looking for any feedback from anyone who has either a Hydrovane or Monitor on a W42 / W43.

    We love our Monitor, after 25,000 miles no real complaints and it has done 90% of the steering. Just make sure you take the time to install properly and sail with it a bit before finalizing the steering line runs. The customer service from Scanmare has been excellent though we have only dealt with them once since installation when the lock mechanism on the wheel adaptor was broken off in a none sailing incident...
