Backup Rudder on Cal 46 with a Custom Boarding Staircase

Hello my cal cruising 46 had the transom cut out and replaced with a boarding steps so that I will not be able to install a windvane nor
back up brackets for an emergency rudder in case
of a rudder breakage or failure. Anyone have any ideas?

I have a roomy engineroom just no midline transome since
it's repalced with a boarding step. I woud like a backup system since I haveread in practical sailor that rudder is most important
