    That's a nice job on an unusual little ship.  :dancetl6:  I see that it has a pilot house and a tiller.  Is this something peculiar to this ship?  Seems like they would need someone at the tiller to steer the ship and someone else in the pilot house to run the engine.  :huh:

    Then there is the idea of having someone at the rear of the ship trying to steer while looking around or thru that pilot house.  I've always wondered about that, especially when the ship is much larger where they are even farther back.  The only experience that I've ever had steering a boat was in a runabout where I was in the forward end of the boat (more like driving a car than a boat) at the steering wheel.  One sure wouldn't want to drive a car or truck while sitting in the rear end!  :rolleyes:

Thanks a lot, BETAQDAVE, for your comment. The observation you make seems very accurate. I enclose some photographs of boats with cabin and tiller, although there are also very frequent boats with wheel rudder in the cabin.
I think that, possibly, those that maintain the tiller were initially sailboats that have been subsequently motorized.
