Thanks for your salty comments, Andrew.

I sailed my first boat from San Diego to New Zealand via the Milk Run in 1978-81. It had a tiller and most of my list of reasons for a tiller were made on that voyage. I will add the one about ripping the pedestal out of the cockpit. It's similar in pucker value to my broken quadrant wire and subsequant gybe in 25 knots while all trussed up like a chicken (pole up and preventer out).
