Wheel Helm vs. Tiller
I know this might boil down to personal preference but wondering what some of you with actual coastal or blue water experience favor; wheel or tiller? I know the arguments over the responsiveness of a tiller and the space limitations of a wheel as well as simplicity vs. complication but are there any other points anyone can bring to my attention as I contemplate a conversion? I would use a direct gear arrangement with angle cut gearing, U joints and a rubber shock joint if I were to make up a conversion, a very simple straight forward and bulletproof design. The boat is a coastal cruiser with blue water coming soon after...input?
