Sorry I'm sure you know the obvious.
Well I can use the helm
,emergency tiller,auto pilot, hole in the rudder
,balance the sails
..(advantage of full keel) and then when all is lost
I can drag the gale rider.
Also figured out a system using large vice grip and 4 blocks on the rudder post to steer from the rear lazarette entry.
I've never even heard of anyone losing helm
control on Island Packets as the steering
uses no chain or belts etc.
