Smart Pilot!

06 October 2009
We now have a new crew member aboard. The "brains" of our new Smart Pilot autopilot system arrived via FedEx this morning and we immediately set too to get the various parts installed. Thankfully everything went very smoothly and before we knew it, all was in place. The moment of truth was switching the thing on - but no crackles or pops occurred! After doing the dockside set-up we headed out onto the still waters of the cove for the calibration steps. It was a perfect evening to do this - very calm and still. We both held our breath for the thirty minutes it took to calibrate everything and amazingly enough it all worked flawlessly.

So now we really are ready to go. We have a gale warning for tomorrow so we will be laying low and hopefully getting some laundry done if we can find a car to borrow. All being well we are going to sneak out of here on Thursday.
