byr0n, electronic steering has become very reliable, so it's the easiest installation. About your force calculation, mostly steering system is moved by water force, not wind. Wind will determine it's direction but enough force to move a tiller/wheel comes from the water passing through the system, and that already include some sort of purchase ratio. So, installation is always complicated and disturbing to your stern platform ....
