    Hi Steve,
    As always, I’ve been enjoying the copious info and photos of the new boats. Avatar looks lovely.
    Do you ever feel separation anxiety after so long a design/build cycle?
    I’m curious about a couple of things I spotted in the photos. What is the white cylindrical object on the railing at the stern? There are a couple of pieces of gear at the helm I couldn’t identify. The 1st one is a raised white panel with a large dial in the centre. IS this the autopilot? Secondly there seem to be two identical units, one at the left aft of the radios and the other on the right just ahead of the thruster joystick. are these controls for the stabilizers?

    Hi David:

    The device on the stern is a tracker for use with a land style BGAN satellite antenna. The white device with the round pointer knob is indeed the helm. I think you are referring to the stabilizer control on the left and the windlass control on the right.
