Re: That kinda sucked, but I chose this life so...
She was great with a tiller, couldn't get the feel of a wheel though. She was invited on Bob Bitch'ns boat one time and was humiliated by her inability to the find the sweet spot. But she could steer a tiller with her foot down 8 foot seas for hours while eating and apple and reading a book.
I know that problem. Tiller steering is very instinctive, and you feel the response in your bones, like it is alive. Wheel is kind of dead.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
