Eolian's cockpit is not large. So, to make room for more than four adults, we used to take off the wheel and bungee it to the bimini frame. Removing the wheel makes the cockpit seem twice as large!
But putting it over on the bimini frame risked rupturing the varnish at the bottom where it rested on the cockpit coaming, as well as where it contacted the frame. And it was not very secure there, with the bungees. So, what to do?

|The Fastpin keeps the wheel in place|
|Look at all that space!|
