Rudder Steering Failure
Say you have a rudder steering failure where the rudder shaft breaks near the rudder (under water line). Say the rudder is still attached and can swing loose from the rudder mounts. An emergency tiller is rig of the stern to provide steering.
What happens to the loose rudder? Do you just leave it to swing freely or does it need to be secured in some way?
