I use more or less the same setup, except I splurged the 20 bucks for the mass-produced version. (Don't bother. Bob's probably works better and is certainly more durable.)

I have never sailed any other way than single hand, so that little guy has been pretty necessary for me. In fact, I was just thinking today that I may have developed some bad habits as far as letting go of the tiller while tacking is concerned. Do you guys worry about that?
