I am new to the forum and would like to introduce myself.
I am an armchair sailor now, after selling our last yacht a Maurice Griffiths Good Hope Cutter
My sailing was generally around the east coast
. I have always been intrigued in self steering gear
and had an auto pilot which was very temperamental. I started to look at sheet to tiller steering
but was slightly put off by the lines crossing the cockpit
. I never actually got round to building any equipment
but had done a few sketches on how a system could work.
The main criteria were to keep it quite simple with the minimum of fabrication, reduce the number of lines in the cockpit
and to be multi adjustable to suit most wind
conditions and boats.
I donít know if sheet to tiller is still of interest, if it is I will happily post a drawing.
Also let me know the best forum to post to.
