Re: Wheel Helm vs. Tiller

excellent advice all around. I favor the feel and response of a tiller but have also considered the level of comfort and flexibility a wheel can offer. It would seem too from some initial investigating that an auto helm is much easier to install and use on a tiller plus all that extra room. My main question was concerning the use a of a tiller with a boat the length of ours but that does not seem to be an issue. More money to put into the rigging. Thanks gang
