Len Hiley talks here about SARAH – the Simple And Reliable Automatic Helm:

John Letcher’s “Self-steering for sailing craft” is a good resource and of interest to anyone using self-steering, with or without vane gear.

You can see it below, copyright John S Letcher and with kind permission of the author, who made many small boat ocean voyages and contributed much to the development of yacht self-steering.
