Yes it did come with a wheel. However, the traveller/main sheet is up by the companionway and hard to get to while single handed sailing. Also, have been sailing with a tiller for the last fifteen years and miss the feel and response you get with a tiller. I know the boat was designed with a tiller but can't seem to find anyone who has one. Have tried cncphotoalbum but can't find much info on the tiller. That is why I am trying to contact anyone that has changed from wheel to tiller.
