Dredging this thread from the depths... May I suggest a second wheel forward, or somewhere a passenger may have access? You'd be surprised how nice it is to have someone else take the Conn for a bit, especially when you need to stick your head in the bilges while under way. After many many many hours of steaming I cannot begin to count the times when we've taken advantage of the second steering station.

I do like that idea.
Will look into it.
I am rather thinking of something along this arrangement.
Thanks
Ian
