I'm new to sailing, bought a 16' 1968 Marauder made if France
, a swingkeel boat w/ cabin
, which I can't find any info on.
On the bottom of the tiller there is this 1" long plastic tube with a notch. I assume it's for holding a line, but I'm not sure how to use it with a line. Do I wrap the rope
around the tiller handle once and then through the tube or what?
There is also a vertical hole in the tiller the size of a pin but I have no matching hardware
and don't know what it's use is.
If anyone could explain these features I would be grateful.
I have attached a picture of the underside of the tiller.
One more question. There is space on the starboard of the transom for a motor
. When motoring do I turn the motor
tiller or the wooden one?
