That stern reminds me of the covered wooden boat we saw at the sail club.

Yep. They are handsome boats but I still can't like rope steering.

I'm with you. On my sailing canoe I tried a push/pull tiller, but I am far too dumb.
Then I went with steering lines, and tied myself to the boat.
I went with a rope loop and kept helming too much or too little.

I planned on trying steering pedals next, but then I dropped my rudder and broke it. Then, I thought of about 947 other "improvements" the canoe needed, and now it's in 947 pieces.:)

Peace,
Robert

No flotation bags? no life jacket? Hope there is a safety boat handy.

It took me about an hour to learn to steer with Coquina's rope system. I had just as much trouble learning to steer with a wheel after growing up with a tiller.

Coquina is the prettiest boat Nat Herreshoff ever drew.

Oh, I'm pretty sure I could make a boat explode and sink, like on The Simpsons, if I had to drive with a wheel.

I think a tiller feels natural from all the years of driving around outboards as a younger man. I understand a tiller, and don't have to think about it.

I have enough else to think about when sailing. :) What? I've not been at it long, yet. I've been paddling lo the long years. :)

Peace,
Robert
