I got this for my Beneteau First 30E, but I had to sell her before I got around to converting her to wheel. I now have an Catalina 25, it's too small to put a wheel on in my opinion, so I am selling it.
This is rack and pinion style (push pull), but you can get a quadrant to use with it for a regular tiller.
It has a lighted Richie powerdamp plus compass. The wheel is 20" it measures 36" x 3.5", 10" base.
