Re: Something to hold tiller in place
Just tried the "Cajun tiller tamer" today. Light to moderate winds just around 10 kts. Also worked for holding course while using the outboard allowing you to put things in order on returning to marina. Simply a line, 3/8, tied from stern cleat to tiller with three turns around tiller from beneath, the tied other end off on the other stern cleat. You tube has a video that shows it very well. I'm impressed. Ultimate in simplicity and when you want to let it off, simply slide the coil to the rear of the tiller. Worth a try. Can't beat the cost!
