Can someone please post a picture of their emergency tiller that fits on the top of the rudder post revealed after removing the cap on the aft deck? I don’t appear to have one on Ronar M and would like to see what I need to make.

Thanks

I don’t have a photo now, but will take one when on the boat again later this week.

The emergency tiller is a curved galvanized tube, about 3 cm in diameter and about 1.5 meters long. I didn’t recognize its use on first appearance. We store ours in the aft locker.

Reportedly it’s tough to use – and I can believe it. Just thinking about using it from the aft deckĀ  inspires me to want to keep the steering gear well serviced.

Ok, here are the pictures. Note that the movement when using this emergency tiller is very active. In other words, rotating the tiller by several centimeters causes the wheel at the helm to spin rapidly.

Hope that helps.
