Emergency tiller socket size for '99 Beneteau 461

I need to build an emergency tiller for our new boat which is located 938miles away. Google and the 'manual' are not yielding any answers! Would anybody happen to know the dimensions, the width of the square and the depth, of the socket on the top of the rudder stock (emergency tiller recepticle)?

Thanks,

Phil

If you're in Houston, give Sealake yacht sales a call.....They may even have one laying around that they could measure.

Thanks for the tip! I'll call them straight away...

UPDATE
..just ordered one from the Sp@re P@rts system.. turned out to be cheaper than what I could probably put one together for.. Stock rods and square bar.. cutting.. welding.. chamfering and finishing etc.
