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?

BTW, ice is almost gone :D
My cousin is going up to the island this weekend. Apparently the ice is out in Honey Harbour and they put their boat (18' aluminum like a Stanley) in yesterday. Still a little chilly for my taste but my cottage is 45 years old with almost no insulation and theirs is a 1 year old, fully insulated modular home.
