The most lethal steering setup ever?

Might do 70 mph plus but not when theres a wave around and it'll cost a small fortune in petrol.

I was looking at the slack in the cables and the ally wing on the engine too. I really wouldn't fancy trying to steer it at 70mph+ like that.

That is yet another Langstone NUTTER.

I dunno it is just full of them down there on the nice hot sunny days.

And that isn't the worst boat with loads of people on board with no life jackets that I've seen at that location.

They only go as far as the harbour entrance though. So if they do break down the tide will take them back to land.

wing plate steering has been around for deakades, when set up right it's the Bomb.

Lot of 'pub experts' here, as usual.

As Fred says, wing plates and wire steering, are the choice of many top boats.

This may not be the best example, but just cos the idea looks like a contraption, don't mean it's no good.

better than hydraulic in a lot of ways. At least for racing.

Loved the ad - reminded me of the old English O level challenge of "correct the spelling, grammar and punctuation of the following..."
