Hi Charles,
Ketches are always a challenge for self steering gear, but your boat is common enough so that others may have tried it. I would try Hans at Scanmar in the US as they are the vendor for Monitor windvanes and may have worked with your design boat.
Good luck and let us know what you find out, Dick Stevenson, s/v Alchemy

I can second Dick's suggestion. We have a Monitor on our Bowman 57 ketch and have been impressed with its performance and Scanmar's service - the best we've ever experienced. See Alex's post below.
