Re: For a family of 4 - Islander 28 vs Catalina 30

It was a wheel, but it looked like a retro-fit. The wheel was transom-mounted, which really opened up the cockpit. But you could access the rudder shaft for an emergency tiller. Plus, the box surrounding the wheel mechanism was great, and if you sat on it you had great visibility forward. I thought my kids would enjoy sitting there.
