On the sc50 to Hawaii I've loved the wheel. Overall I think our ( crewed ) performance is better. I love the idea of rage ( Wylie 70 tiller ) but in not sure that sailed by less than gods it would work well long term.

Well I've done 3 Transpacs on my 35' and I could not contemplate doing it with a wheel...  With a tiller extension with enough length adjustment you can change positions so that your legs are facing forwards, you are driving with one arm, then with the other, etc.  Really I don't even understand the issue here but the feel with a tiller just cannot be matched by a wheel.
