Thanks Mike, your feedback reinforces my thinking on what reality might actually look like.  I've been moving towards 27' minimum size (instead of 25') and a self-steering (auto-pilot) tool being highly desirable.  Useful info, thanks.     What can people tell me about auto-pilots on smaller, inexpensive boats?  In a catalogue (Downwind Marine, online) I saw a tiller device for $395 (up to 6500 lbs); $1495 (16,500 lbs); and a wheel device for $1195 (16,500 lbs). [all of them "AutoHelm"]   What kind of information /experience/prices can folks share ? thanks, L D
