I've never been a hugely keen helmsman on passaging, so I've always let the autohelm do the job (even on the tall ship I've been crewing on we rarely touched the wheel)

when beating I've always steered, but on long legs allowed the autohelm back.

Most autohelms can have a windvane option attached can't they? How do those work out? It always seemed a good idea to me but I wondered how it might rely on just where you could stick the little windvane.
