Re: Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

For gosh sakes. Whenever a thread comes up where someone inquires about a project like this, the "Tiller People" rise up like so many zombies and, ignoring much of what the OP has said, state that they like tillers, tillers are good, why don't you want a tiller? as if they and their tillers have been somehow threatened by someone wanting a wheel. Great, you tiller folks like your tillers--have an annual meeting about it. Bring your tillers Meanwhile, some like the wheel. Or in this case, the OP's wife wants a wheel. A perfectly fine reason to get a boat with a wheel. Conversion on that boat? Maybe not.
