therondor is on a distinguished road

owning a columbis 36 with a triller i wonder why you would want to change to a tiller don't get me wrong i love my tiller ,but it takes up a huge amount of room in the cockpit and if you plan to run with your rails in the water you better grow some arms as weather helm is purely leverage and wreslteing a 6 00 pound gorrilla for 5 or 6 hours is a tiring affair,infact hthis heai i am converting this to a wheel it will free up several feet of the cockpit with the relocation od the mainsail boom traveler to the top to the coach i will be able to use the the entire cockpit i'm hoping to find a bimini for the sun really burns me up,. howerve if it,s racing you are interested than a tiller might be your thing but for cruising i would have to recomend the wheel
