KISS? or ... why a wheel?

so basicly it''s just space, and stearing effort?

Is a boats ability to stay on track without someone at the helm realy affected greatly by the type of steering device? my little signet doesnt stay a course too well, but my friends newport''ll stay in a straight line for quite a while (longer than we''ve ever gone) with no one paying any attention to the tiller. I suppose we should get an autohelm at some point... hrm..
