One thing to add to the equation!

So from what I hear, half of you love sterring with a tiller and the other half do not think it is worth the time and money!?

Well, to the first half, I like a wheel on a boat that size and I promise you it has nothing to do with being "'yauhty".

As for the second half of you, I think I left something out of the equation, the cost of the boat. I can get the boat for $10K less that other Islander 36 in the same comdition and will a less impressive list of specs. If I can convert to wheel steering for a weekend of labor and $5K,.... it may to very well worth it.

Thanks for all your input!
