system will depend on the boat and the type of rudder
arrangement. for example, I have a transom hung rudder
, with an additional stainless box section through bolted on the rudder. I have an emergency tiller handle that fits into this box and provides all that I need.
If your rudder is a through hull
system, you need to add something to the head
of the rudder stock and provide access to that from somewhere that you can steer. You also need to ensure that you can seal that access around the emergency tiller bar.
