Dog - that's funny. I was actually wondering about the line through the aft edge of the rudder thing. I like that. Makes a lot of sense.

Now none of these options sound pleasant in screaming conditions - but I suppose you steer with sail until things calm down enough where you can start throwing the tools around.

So - for passage prep, seems like having 3 or so solid back up options for steering is what you're shooting for?
