Re: Single vs dual wheel boats. Educate me on pro and con!
If you haven't boarded a dinghy or gone swimming from a cockpit with dual helms and a sugar scoop transom, you haven't lived.
One post above asked about engine controls. I strongly prefer them on the binnacle, especially when backing up. I want to be able to stand facing either forward or backward and not take my eye off the mission to adjust throttle.
I hate the ankle height controls, buried on either side of a dual helm cockpit. Crazy. While we have dual helms, the engine controls are up high on the inside of the starboard helm, so I can face either way and reach them.
