"Sure this is the wind vain I am using.
The sensor I am using is a US Digital MA3 I started with a multi turn POT but the friction on the shaft was too much. I think this will work much better, although I have not tested it on the watter…"
"Glad to see some renewed intrust in autonomous boats. I haven't done much with mine for a long time but I still poke at it every once in a while.
I think SailBoats should have there own code base, because sailing is its own creature (not like…"
"Its nice to see some more people working on automated sailing. There are a few of us around here that are putting AP on the water.
Harald Molle did a grate series of blogs on his boat, although it is not a sail boat.
Here are some sail…"
<-- One picture of my boat (my avatar). Sorry Not much else. I will have to get some photos up soon.

"I am very interested to watch as the project progresses.
I to am working on an an autonomous sail boat, although no where near as big as yours. I hope to have something floating around by the end of the summer.
Looking forward to updates. Keep up…"
"COOL. I assume you are using Doppler shift to figure the speed. Have you looked at putting a sound source (beacon) on quieter planes. This would be awesome for Dynamic soaring guys. Would be nice not to have to point a radar gun at the plane.
"Google and Android embrace open source when it serves them and turns a blind eye other times.
I grabbed a Entourage Pocket Edge on Woot last week hoping to use it as a ground station. It runs Android and has an e-ink screen that would be good for…"

I thought that I taught my self to program on a C64. When I got to collage my instructor did not agree. What is wrong with self modifying assembly code?
I remember the first assignment in…"
I am also slowly pecking away at an Arduino Pilot sailboat.
Thanks for pointing out some links that I haven't stumbled across yet. Please keep us posted on you progress exc..
On my boat I just got my USDigital wind vain talking to the…"
"SD card can be easy to add to almost any micro.
Many years ago I worked on a project adding an SD card slot to a product running an Atmel mega8 (I think). As I recall the SD cards have a basic serial interface that can be connected to a…"
