Expert advise needed to help me decide which tiller pilot I should buy. With endless budget I would go for Raymarine EV-100, unfortunately I have to deal with a few more thing therefore I have to save some coins... However the TP which came with my "new" boat is a crap. Another misfortune I can't let the tiller go even for a very short time which is probably the disadvantage of the spade rudder. In theory I only need to use TP for doing sail changes, I mean reefing or dropping sail. Longer legs I have an Aires wind vane.
As I already had a Raymarine St 2000+ (on my old boat) I know that is very delicate and doesn't take much get water damaged (I "nano coated" my one's circuit board which improved its resistance for water, but..). I was considering to move to Simrad. and here is the next question, what size. Topaz (my boat) is 10 m long (33 foot) and weighs 5.5 t in ready to go condition. Lengthwise TP22 is fine however the weight is slightly over. Should I follow the book and go for the 32, or 22 should be enough? Also which is the best place to buy (pricewise).
