Very thorough description of both systems. I feel however you skipped one important bit of info: what happens to the hydraulic piston of the BG when not in use ? Is it dislodged ? Or does it keep moving and possibly wearing out when hand steering or under wind vane ?

It stays attached and just gets pushed in and out with very little resistance. I guess technically that mist cause some wear and tear, but certainly not enough to shorten its lifespan.

“A good designer knows they have achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there’s nothing left to take away.” So true! Who are you quoting here, you architects you!?? I like the look of the Caphorn too. I don’t know anything about “k porn”, though, lol. I might have to google it. Naaa, I prefer sailboat restoration ‘porn’. Like autopilots, it’s "courses for horses,” eh? Sailing Uma video library is like a really good book. I try to resist the temptation to skip to later chapters but I can’t help myself! I like that the Caphorn is Canadian too. Nice flag! Thanks for sharing :-)

Cap Horn and a squeaky wheel pilot on my Alberg 35 which has been home for 32 years. I did find a learning curve with the vane, mostly in having to learn to sail the boat balanced. Otherwise, if I'm sailing, its driving, even in close waters. I had the opportunity to tell Yves, its creator, he had made me a passenger on my own boat even when I singlehand. Eric runs Cap Horn now and is awesome. He has more than once refused any payment for bushings and plastic parts even after 30 years service. Squeaky is for motoring. Mine doesn't nap, but has an odd aversion to heading W, where he is apt to loose data. Im old enough to sympathize with such lapses. Love your channel and only wish I'd crossed tracks with you guys when you were in Fairhaven buying Uma! I'm a naval architect and occasionally work in that shipyard.

Excellent summary ! We named ours Yves after you-know-who and it served us flawlessly for 6+ years of off-the-coast cruising down into Central America. The 'plastic' caps on the fittings at the bottom both fell off and the little tiny actuator arm inside the linkage (outside the stern) finally broke when we had a heavy-handed yard-guy kick the linkage out of the way inside the aft lazarette (thanks bozo !). We also used the Cap Horn with a Tillerpilot for plain compass course holding using the paddle for all the brute power and never got a separate autopilot.

15:00 - I’s Norway, “Sunny on the bow, raining on the stern...and it’s snowing in the middle!” That was my experience in Scotland. If the Sun was out, that meant that it was going to rain in the next 15-minutes. In the Winter it was quite cold. In Holy Loch where we once has a Submarine Base, I did a couple of refutes there and an extended refit in floating dry dock. They lowered a steel shack onto the missile deck for topside watch standers. We would have to leave it every couple of minutes to push it back into the center of the deck to prevent being blown overboard. That is what I’ve been thinking about during your upper latitudes trip. If you cross the Article Circle, you can become a Bluenose like me. Been under the ice twice.

As for wind vanes how well they work in all points of sail also has a lot to do with how well your boat sails at all points of sail. Some boats out there can barely be called sail boats.

"the boat is going to be all over the place..." with your wind vane. "you're sailing a big S...doesn't really matter when you're offshore..." Gosh, I don't know where to start: Wind vanes steer a course to the wind; when the wind shifts, vanes correct to keep sails pulling. Of course the wind vane doesn't steer a rhumb line. Miles made good is dependent on full sails: sometimes that is a big S, but that is the direction to keep the sails full. Auto-pilot steers a compass course, so when the wind shifts, the sails luff or lose shape. "Wind vane is best with consistent wind and waves..." No again. Consistent wind and waves (or dead calm, or fiords) favor an auto-pilot because it's not constantly correcting. Wind shifts in strength and direction are exactly what wind vane steering systems are designed to handle. If a brute wave or sudden squall hits: auto-pilot doggedly attempts to maintain a compass heading. Can damage the ram, drains power and can point you in a dangerous aspect to the sea. Cape Horn is the "only vane on the market tailored to you individual boat..." BTW: Monitor (I use) customizes the install for each hull. I wanted to enjoy this comparison, and it's not often I comment. The last jab was the sargassum: of course it's going to collect on the paddle, just like it will collect on the prop. Words matter when attempting to enlighten potential cruisers, and I'm commenting because there are truths you spoken, and also some fuzzy thinking.

Very good discussion on selfsteering. What you did not metion is that the Cape Horn the quadrant is installed inside the boat (which is why it looks so clean outside). This takes up some space which, on a small boat, is an issue. Also, some sailing boats designs simply dont have that space available at the required locaction like any more modern boat with open ended cockpit for example). We sail a Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 where the Cape Horn cannot be fitted unless you install the quadrant outside, at the stern. We had a Pacific Light Windpilot installed when we bought the boat and we love it but balancing the sails is key. Take care!

Yes, the quadrant on the Cape Horn can be mounted externally, and off centre. Thats the beauty of working with them, they will custom make each unit to fit your boat exactly. It does start to get complicated, but they claim they can instal one on any boat.

We LOVE having the helm forward in the cockpit. You almost get the benefits of a center cockpit without any of the space reduction. It does however make entering the companionway a little awkward for some people who visit. But we're young and nimble so we don't find it an issue.

Thanks... strangely enough I purchased a new Ray Marine EV1 wheel pilot which I also integrated with the instruments and the chart plotter. Doing the chart plotter (an older one with NEMA 0183) required buying a communications bridge - but it communicated perfectly and I needed to keep the NEMA 0183 for things like DSC on my VHF. The wheel drive actually works perfectly on our 34' sloop. The problem I have is with the software from Ray Marine. It DEMANDS acknowledgment on a GPS route at EVERY course change which means I have to be behind the wheel defeating the very purpose of the auto pilot - freeing me from being behind the wheel. Like you the very time I need it to do a route is when we are levying or coming back from a dock when I want to be rigging or de rigging the boat but this stupid demand from Ray Marine says I can't do this - I have to say it is ok to change course... As far as I know Ray Marine is the ONLY company that does this - B&G does NOT do this. For me the only way round this is to get the expansive wireless remote where I can acknowledge the course change from a position other than the helm. So ... there goes another $800 that I would not otherwise need to spend.... I don't need a wind vane as we simply coastal sail but I do NEED an auto pilot that actually auto routes and Ray Marine ... is not that pilot the SOFTWARE is the culprit not the hardware which works fine ... Ray Marine alone does this... no one else does it.

We sailed from Australia to East Coast USA via South Africa in the mid-80's with a home made wind vane vaguely copied off an Atoms. I used a bike hub on the sail which made it very sensitive so it performed well in everything from force 2 to 12 (storm off Madagascar where we had a design issue as the pooping seas whilst trailing warps flipped the servo sideways and tore it out of its mounts, fixed with a simple modification in South Africa).

How well do you find the wind angle mode works on your autopilot? One of the common comparisons between a windvane & autopilot is that an autopilot will try to steer a compass bearing regardless of the apparent wind, and therefore doesn't achieve max efficiency from the sails. Windvanes on the other hand couldn't care less about the compass and just respond to changes in wind, therefore keeping the sails performing better. With a windvane, even in spite of the big Ss you're tracking you can achieve better performance overall, so long as you're keeping alert I suppose, doing a U-turn might change things a bit :) This seems to tie in with what you were saying, but have you played around with the wind angle mode on your autopilot to see how that compares?

The "wind" setting works really well actually. But just like the windvane, it does better in consistent wind. Big gusts and variable angles make it work harder.

Congratulations on your videos, they are nice and very well popularized. In 1999, we set off as a family for a round-the-world sailing trip. We installed what seemed to be the best windvane on the market. Since then, the CapHorn manufactured by Yves Gélinas, near us in Quebec, has steer Balthazar over more than 50,000 miles, not only for our round-the-world tour, but also from Quebec to Alaska via the Northwest Passage. There are essential things on a sailboat and, as far as we are concerned, the CapHorn is one just like the mast and the sails! Félicitations pour vos vidéos, ils sont sympathiques et très bien vulgarisés. En 1999, nous sommes partis en famille pour un tour du monde. Nous avons installé ce qui nous semblait être le meilleur régulateur d’allure sur le marché. Depuis, le régulateur d’allure CapHorn fabriqué par Yves Gélinas, près de chez nous au Québec, a barré Balthazar sur plus de 50 000 milles, non seulement pour notre tour du monde, mais aussi du Québec en Alaska via le passage du Nord-Ouest. Il y a des choses indispensables sur un voilier et, en ce qui nous concerne, le CapHorn en est une au même titre que le mât et les voiles !

Reference Sargasso: UK and European freshwater Silver Eels, travel more than 3,000 miles across the ocean to the Sargasso Sea, to spawn. Once hatched, the larvae make their way back somehow and become transparent 'glass eels'. Fascinating creatures, little understood, but heading for extinction like so many species killed off by us, over - numerous humans sprawling uncontrollably over the planet, so far.

Firstly, I enjoy your channel, BUT, the info you have given regarding a self steering wind vane in comparison to an auto pilot, re: anticipating the movement of the boat is not correct, the wind vane will only correct, when the wind vane tilts or rotates, i.e., the coarse changes, it does not anticipate the coarse change, verses a modern auto pilot like you have [B&G], with a 9 axis gyro, monitoring roll, pitch and yaw , and anticipates a coarse change, and will start correcting before the change takes place, much like a helmsman would.

The windvane has a pendulum in the water and it can also "feel" when the boat is sliding down a wave and correct the motion. But after 3 years with both, we still prefer the windvane off shore. It just works better.

If you had to go without one or the other which would it be?

Looking through the previous owners diary. There is a few pages for the old belt driven auto pilot. And numerous complaints filed with the company that made it.

it seems like more of your videos are just long advertisements.
