Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

I tried to pm you but, apparently, I'm not allowed yet as I don't have enough post? Everything I have was removed from a Morgan 33 out island. That's the same boat I have. The only issue I can see is the diameter of the rudder post. I'm not exactly sure what size this setup is for? I can measure it. But, it's Christmas so, let's enjoy and deal with this after Christmas.

Merry Christmas

Re: Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

Just looked at the ad for the Tartan. Nice boat, and IMO a wheel would be a crime. However, I love the note in BIG RED FONT the seller posted saying he didn't want to entertain dreams of arm chair sailors who could only afford a dingy. And that he had invested almost the asking price (27+k) in the boat. A 40 year old, 34 foot boat with an A4, in this market? I think he might be confused about who is dreaming, and may be in for a lesson on "investing" in boats!
BTW: Not the newer light weight racing boat I imagined it was in an earlier post!

I would probably pass just because the guy sounds like a total douche from the listing. Not someone I'd want to do a transaction with.

You didn't miss out on anything. You will find a boat with a wheel and a diesel within your budget easily.

Re: Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

What's wrong with a tiller? It's really the simplest and best system. If it works for your boat, I'd keep it.
