Denr is an unknown quantity at this point
These boats are meant to be sailed backwards, if you think about it, you don't have all of those sails, standing rigging and life lines to obscure your vision, these are very cleverly designed boats, getting them into and out of a slip is a bitch though.

They look like those German Tanks sold to Mussolini during WWII. They had 4 speeds reverse and only one speed forward!!!

The Macs, I put them out of their collective misery? I had them all emptied of fuel and other toxic substances, towed every one of them out into the middle of Lake Michigan and sunk them, they make nice fish habitats.

I looked at a Tayana 37 when I bought my boat 8 years ago. Super strong boats, but when doing the survey it felt like I was backing up a house to leave thr slip.

All wrong. Those type of wheels in those boats were designed by this guy, for his own amusement.

Apparentely all his family suffered of this disease. "assus steeirtus"

You guys are so cynical. In reality this is simply a display of superior seamanship as he is avoiding overloading his vessel past the Cost Guards recomendation. Teddy+Booze=No more room for other people and no need neither.

Quite disappointed

Im quite disappointed in the cynical responses I received here. This makes me believe more then ever that there should be a section for newbie questions, which I requested 6 months ago..

Dave, the first three replies were dead center for answers to your question.
I have been looking at some boats with that arrangement myself. I do not care for it and was wondering if there were ways to modify it to a stand behind wheel without compromising the integrity or value of the boat.
Good luck in your search for the boat you want.
