Of course but sometimes I find myself just looking down at the wheel.

The Smart craft, "SmartCraft" has a little bitty rudder indicator. The 2nd indicator is mounted, along with the separate depth sounder, in a box just below eye level.

And you folks thought I knew what I was talking about?
I do believe my intuitive gene has died.

Well just figure your turns hardover to hardover and then go half away and see if your indicator is showing center. Then whip you a line on your wheel. With the spoke type wheel your key and sprocket may not be located in such a manner that you will end up with a spoke in the middle and upright. Of course if you got one made, you can figure all that into play when building it.
