Re: tiller management




I use a scrap piece of halyard line to make one turn around the tiller,
tie one end to a stern cleat and tie the other end (thru a short bungee) to
the other cleat.  Tension the bungee just enough to hold the tiller in place
without making it impossible to move the tiller.  Works as well as you
can expect a locked tiller to work, equally poorly under sail or power.
You get at least a few seconds of freedom to go somewhere else.
You will soon lust for an electronic autopilot just like me.
