Not my style, but spied this on "the bay", doing my once a week check out of what wooden boats are for sale...

Looks very classy....although badly photographed for advert. Shame it doesn't have an old outboard...

BUT...look at all those dials and gauges on the dashboard.....!

Dr WhoA I like fins!
Dash impressive but tiller steering is a distinct disadvantage .
Met the seller once -buys lots of boats from ferries to putters and moves around a bit !

Didn't pick the tiller steering, but didn't even think it was an option.

But that's why there is no steering wheel amongst the gauges!

'morning boys, nice find.  Cool Cool
I don't know what you two are looking at, but I can see the hole in the dash ready for the steering assembly. (hard over on the Port side near some chrome item) I can also see a foot throttle (not yet connected)

If you look at the stern shot, you can see two steering pulleys mounted either side of the transom. These guide the steering cable to the rudder post which has a quarter pie shape piece on the top of the rudder post which the steering cable attaches to. No tiller, sorry.

Ony Jokin from the start. Apart from the obvious stern

if you had a tiller you would be sitting rear with no vision and couldn't see the gauges anyway .

Sorry -too subtle .

I should have used some smileys while sparing with Dr WhoA  Wink
Have a  timber rudder with tiller  (one of many ) upon which is written  'The Hun '  Grin

Neil,you challenge my cerebral "lateralness", which I thought was pretty good. ...but obviously not good enough!

Be gentle....I've normally got a few stouts under the belt by the time I get onto this forum in the evening....
