Re: tillerlock vs tiller clutch

I am about as much of a ghetto fabulous sailor as they current tiller is actually an axe handle...
But I read about something that sounded good, I've never seen it in person, but:
Seems if you go get a timing belt or chain off an old car, it looks like a tiny ladder, string it across your cockpit, then put some sort of small lug on the underside of your tiller, simply drop the lug into the right spot on the timing belt, and viola! Tiller is locked in place.
I thought it was really clever when I read about it.
