Belcher really did "write the book" on self steering systems and provides simple to follow diagrams and patterns for vertical, horizontal, and servo-pendulum systems. Even if you're not planning on building your own, it's nice to understand the basic concepts of what they do, how they work, and the pros and cons of the different systems. If you do decide to get this book, remember that some of the more simplistic designs can be scaled down and rigged on a dinghy for almost no money at all. A few bucks in plywood and some pvc pipes could get you a small self steering system. Don't worry about trying to build a servo-pendulum system for your 50' sailboat right off the bat. Start simple, start easy. Bill Belcher's book helps you do that.
