We are currently mono hull
sailors and will soon make the move to a multi and spend our retirement
on the water
While recently browsing some catamaran
add's we noticed one that looked like it had no steering wheel
or tiller and on further reading of the add found out that it had "fulcrum tiller steering".
I have been involved in sailing for five over decades and have never heard this term until now.
I fully understand what a fulcrum is and how it works and can even imagine how it could be used to get the advantage needed to steer a boat but for the life of me have never seen or heard of it before.
I have tried Google
with no results and tried looking elsewhere without much luck. Can someone shine some light on this for me or perhaps provide a link or pointer to where I might learn a bit more about this.
Thanks in advance.
