We are hoping to make some fairly lengthy passages this summer and whilst we have an autohelm or two we really feel that we need a Monitor, Hydrovane or Aries.
 
I don't suppose anyone has such a thing surplus to requirements?!
 
Incidentally anyone know what make is now fitted to Gigi?

Gigi - looks like a Windpilot to me, see here:
You might be interested in looking at a similar sort of design but much less money:

Gigi (and a number of other Co32s including my own) have fitted a Windpilot Pacific.  Great piece of kit.   There is a tech paper on the website on how best to install.
 
Good luck finding a second hand one, they come up on ebay occasionally but can command a high price £1-2K depending on condition and age.  Unfortunatly the euro exchange rate is not helping if you wanted to buy new but if you want to do some longer offshore trips they are worth it.
