One question—how many turns is it from lock to lock on the wheel? Saying that you're turning it a quarter turn may be significant or mean nothing at all. If the boat takes four turns, lock to lock, a quarter turn isn't much at all... if it takes only 1-1/2 turns lock to lock, a quarter turn is a hell of a lot of helm.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
