Emergency steering hole in rodder for rope?
Back when rudders, like the rest of the boat, were built of wood, that hole, or a steel tang with a hole, was a standard feature. I''ve seen some outboard rudders with chains rigged to that point and led up to the quarters to make going for a swim unnecessary.
