While I am on the subject of engineering and architecture, another problem I have is the tiller. It is a 1" wood dal rod 48" long. I sit in the middle seat when I sail. The only problem with this is I cannot take on passengers. The tiller moves from left to right all the way over the back seat. My boat has no front seat but a deck instead. Is there a way to convert the tiller so someone can sit in the rear seat and me still be able to steer?
