"I usually use a ST1000 without any big problems till now.
Anyway, note that I've never met very strong conditions.
The critical point, for me, at the moment, is the place where I attach the extension from the tiller to the pilot.
many thanks for your reply.
"A full day to assemble a tiki 30" should be very good to me. Cause in Italy mooring is very expensive and you expect to be charged for a Tiki 21 like for a 40 feet monohull!"
