Tried it once...

We used a tiller once, when the cables on the quadrant got loose and we shipped the emergency unit into place. It needed two hefty guys to hold it in less than 20 knots of breeze and smooth 3' rollers off the quarter. Glad our wheel has worked for the past twelve years except for that three hour episode, but I guess that's why we have one, and I'm glad we did.
