If you do not use an autopilot, or if it fails on you, this is a great way to steer from the companionway (and if you have a small dodger, it is a dryer place...or from the bow.
Just a system of lines connected to the tiller. Designed and built by Jason, Elise's regular and favorite rigger!
Lines are connected to the tiller.
Repeater around the bow to steer the boat from the bow (or to block the tiller from moving around) - might attach a separate line from each side that could be grabbed by hand and carried over the mast during gybes.
Series of turning block to redirect the lines.
