I've had both singles and doubles I liked the single better and the double was on a way better boat but the steering response sucked.. Personal preference, not set in stone but I'm sure leaning that way..

I have 60" tall Dave Powell rudders on my big boat, and a 60" tall single, 45"s wide on my 14ft Palm Beach hull...and the single turns circles around the doubles, but is much more sensitive.

There where in the bad sh!t that my double boat didn't want to turn.. Never had that problem with the single and it was a lot heavier then the boat with the doubles on it..

He is really not that pricey,he only gets 500.00 for them and I guarantee the quality is second to none. If you were to look inside one there is an unbelieveable amount of work there.772-970-0344 George
