I think wheel pilots had very limited use, on sheltered waters or easy winds, for instance. Global changes on weather patterns, waves, winds and currents, etc ... put even the old belief on hydraulic drives robustness on check, with a growing demand for repair. Wheel drives have an even narrower use nowadays, so consider a below deck drive instead a X-5 wheel ....
