Re: Wheel Helm vs. Tiller
Depends on size of boat. I'd not do it if under, say, 35'. Much better ways to throw away a few dollars. Our old 34'er had a wheel, her sister ship that we race on fairly regularly has tiller. Wheel has certain advantages, yes, but then so does a tiller and I simply cannot see any good reason to go from one to the other.
