I have a Rival 32 and it has a tiller. It seems that a number of older British built boats all have tillers. It is interesting to note that a lot of the current single handed round the world race boats are tillers. That says a lot. For me, I prefer a tiller over a wheel, except when in reverse, I could never get it right. My wife prefers the wheel, it is similar to the car.
