  "The unusual feature of the boat is that it will have no steering wheel but will be steered by means of a rudder bar worked with the feet.

Elimination of a gear box provides a direct drive to each propellor which turn in opposite directions, and, according to D’Eath, will permit higher speeds on the turns and easier handling.
