Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
My "emergency tiller" Is the boats tiller with a shortened arm that is now a piece of aluminum. Instead of storing the "emergency tiller" somewhere below, it lives, out of the way on the rudder post. I can mount the tiller pilot to this tiller just the same way I would if I didn't have a wheel. The boat is very well balanced and the leverage will be more than adequate.
Much simpler than installing one on the wheel. Less expensive, too.
