I just noticed that you have a Liberty 458, which is an offshoot of the Peterson
44. I sailed a Peterson
for years, and it had a very poor emergency
tiller set up. I would of had to go down to the aft cabin
, dismantle the bunk and attach the tiller, and then not be able to see where I was going, or handle anything on deck
, or even communicate with people on deck
. I hope the liberty has thought it out better than the Peterson. If your system is similar, I would make sure you have spares for everything in your hydraulic system. Best of luck. _____Grant.
