From a design standpoint, I just noticed something a little strange. On 99.9% of boats with twin wheels, the wheel pedestals are canted outboard to allow the helmsman a better of view of what is happening forward of the rig and a clear path from companionway to the stern for movement of people and goods. On this boat, the wheel pedestals are canted inboard giving almost no benefit whatsoever. Do they pivot outboard?
I guess it depends on where the base is located. On Giuletta the base of the pedestal is more midship whereas on this one the base more to the outside. It looks like the wheel is still out as far as it will go.

BTW, ice is almost gone :D
