EMERGENCY RUDDER SYSTEM FOR COMPLEX OR SHALLOW TRANSOMS
We built this system to use existing aluminum T-track on the transom.We built a sturdy composite platform with it's own composite "track" system that slides down in place.
To make steering more comfortable, we built an "S" tiller that rises up to the upper cockpit level and clears the backstay by wrapping around it.
