Difficult to answer, but most likely no. You need to have the pilot controll at a point where it moves rudder
from one side to the other with it's full length of travel. No more and no less. Otherwise it will have to major dificlties. It won't have enough power to move the weight of the rudder and it won't have the correct speed of travel, resulting in overly correcting the tiller.
You need the correct attacment to the tiller arm to compensate for the sweep.
