Hello Rob,
With wheel steering as on a 40' Harryproa will it rotate 360 and then have to go back 370 to go an additional 10 degrees or will it be continuously rotatable (to 370 or more). ?  Will it be balanced so that there is no load (50/50)or (40/60), or other ?  Can rudders be rotated 90 degrees to use as brake when at speed ?
Happy sailing,

It makes a lot of sense, the control is fantastic. The rudders
mounted on the hulls only rotate through 270 degrees, as will Blind
Date's as they are using a rack and pinion system. On my little boat
and all the others, it will be 360.
