Tiller options C&C 27

I have a tiller that has become relly problematic when I have 3 or 4 in the cockpit. My gears are on the floor so a wheel would be impractical.

has anyone installed a modified tiller that takes up less room?

Many thanks,

nigel

tiller problem

I have had numerous tillers over the years in my MKI. I have found that keeping several on board is the key. On nights when we are entertaining and harbor sailing, I use a shorty with steeper rise. Then I have a hefty one for racing and passages. Number three is to replace anything that breaks. Erie Dearie

Hi Nigel: not sure what you meant by "gears on the floor." Engine controls? If so, I have the main ignition etc panel still on the port seat front location, and the shift lever and throttle up in the binnacle. I have a Mk 1 27 (1971, #93) that a previous owner fitted with an Edson wheel, and it sure opens up the cockpit and reduces wrestling matches with the scimitar rudder. Main traveller is set on a cross brace immediately in front of the binnacle. The binnacle has also provided a handy mounting point for GPS nav. Unfortunately this wheel I understand is now about a $3000 retrofit. I guess I got lucky. One other mod you have to make is to split the backstay (nice to have anyway to control headstay tension) so you have room to stand behind the wheel.

Just remembered there's a pic of me steering the 27 with a wheel on the "welcome" page of my Georgian Bay cruising website. But I don't think I have the only Mk 1 27 in the world with a wheel.
