My Maxim 380 came without an instruction manual, and I am keen to learn how the emergency
tiller works. The emergency
tiller itself is straight forward, and has an about 1 inch square metal end, which is clearly meant to slot into a fitting attached somewhere in the steering
system. Can anyone tell me where this might be?
There is a threaded cap on the deck
above the steering
(one on each side) which looks like it might be relevant, but on unscrewing the cap all I can see is some hard plastic (see photo).
I'd be very grateful if someone with a similar catamaran
would let me know how the emergency tiller works.
