Regarding that emergency tiller. It won't be just any old tiller, but something made to fit over the rudder post, as Dwayne said. On the Pearson 28, it's a big honking piece of aluminum shaped like a bent L with a notch in one end to fit over a bolt that goes through the rudder post. Did you get one with the boat? Look for a deck port or some other access point right above the rudder.
