Used self steering gear? I'm trying to find a used Schwing Pilot or as many parts from one as I can, since I'm subsisting on my Veterans Disability price is a big consideration. I have a friend that is a retired engineer who can help with repairs and installation. Also in addition to all the sails and hardware from my 28" tri, I have a 14' x 12' A-frame, two 2 ton chain hoists, a big Delta dust collector and a couple of deck mounted compasses that I won't be able to use until I get a shop again. The 39' rotating mast is pretty sweet, but I suppose anyone building a boat that size can afford a carbon fiber mast. I suppose I should look for a dis-masted boat in the 30' range and consider moving to a warmer climate.
