The only reason Beneteau puts two wheels on the 40 is so you can walk right in from the stern platform instead of having to go around the wheel. The again there's the story of the 473 that hit a buoy on the Cooper River in Charleston a few years ago. Owner was on one wheel, his buddy who was teaching him was on the other. Guess they each wanted to pass the buoy on a different side. True story, I was on the dock when she came in with the bashed in port side.
