I think the wheel steer option is a great one. I myself do not own a Hunter 260 but I am searching the market. With my interest in the boat I have become bored and read anything I could find on it and looked at all the pictures and videos.

From what I have read in reviews and other forums, the wheel is a great option. They say it doesnt take up much space in the cockpit, especially if you have the stern rail seating. It seems to make going to and from the dock a breeze because you can stand up the whole time and work the throttle and wheel without bending down and letting your guard down.

From what I have read I have heard no bad comments about the wheel till I came to this forum. I know I dont have one but the comments seem to come from non-owners. So my suggestion ask a real owner.
