Re: Did the Islander 28 come with a wheel or tiller?

They came from the factory with a TILLER unless you ordered an OPTIONAL pedestal wheel.

If your boat originally came with a tiller, the tiller head stands proud very conveniently under the skipper's butt, and it is simple to bolt an emergency tiller back onto it, although you'll find that if the emergency tiller is more than about 18" long, it is going to hit the pedestal wheel.

You either need to fit a helm seat, skipper the boat standing, or...well, let's not go there.

But unless someone ordered an optional pedestal, or installed one later, the boats came with a laminated wood tiller. And when the sails are trimmed properly, the boat has a damned neutral helm, she'll steer herself for hours.
