Re: Tiller conversion to wheel

I would think that larger boats that have transom-hung rudders would have longer tillers. This would give you more mechanical advantage.

I'm in the same camp as the 'tiller people', however, there are obviously lots of boats out there with wheels, so, the other camp is well represented.
