tiller/ wheel

I agree, tiller = fewer moving parts, more responsive but still personal choice. If a boat has decent wheel steering leave it alone, My preference is tiller however my boat has a wheel. Fewer things to go wrong, however , a back up tiller is always available. Many new or inexperienced sailors find a wheel easire to steer by.

Have fun
